St Monans Churchyard, Fife

I was recently commissioned to paint a view of the Churchyard at St Monans. The client wanted four children included in the painting but otherwise left me to choose the best view, which was much appreciated, as it enabled me to select a view which not only met the client’s specifications but allowed me to choose the view which I think best portrays the unique setting of St Monans church. The church building and churchyard are centre stage but I’ve included enough visual information to show the quaint fishing village, red-tiled houses and harbour in the distance with a wide expanse of sea and sky behind.
