At the weekend I took a trip to Suffolk with my good friend Joannie. One of the beautiful places we were lucky enough to visit was the Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford, Suffolk.
Inside the church at the end of each pew hung a different painting by Iain McKillop. Beautiful religous works full of character and emotion; studies for the altar piece at Gloucester cathedral.
On my return I looked McKillop up on the internet and fell upon his cathedral works..You just HAVE to see these.

Cathedral works (http://hometown.aol.co.uk/imckillopi/page3Cathedralshtml.html)

I am uncertain if they are acrylic or oil, probably the latter but such I'm sure there is room for such excellence to be shared here never the less ;)
The studies I saw did appear to be acrylic but I imagine his main works would be oil simply because of where they hang.

Thank you for sharing this with us, Anita. Your sketchbook is very inspiring. I am going to take a cross-country trip in another month or so and I hope to be able to keep a travel sketchbook (as long as they don't take my watercolors at the airport!). If only my handwriting was as neat....
