The South Door

Philip Biffen

For some time now I've been looking for the ultimate detailed subject to get my teeth into with pen and ink, I think I've found it in the gem of a Norman church St.Nicholas,Barfrestone.
The Sun was just at an oblique angle,enough to make the carvings jump out at you with deep shadow and bright highlights.
A nightmare to set out,a headache to draw,a joy to complete.
