Plein Air Oil Painting

I went to Fitzroy Gardens this morning. 
I decided to challenge myself by choosing St Patrick's Cathedral from this spot. 

It's a very complicated subject, and I wasn't sure if I could make a decent painting out of it. 

I checked its proportion very carefully. Because there's much difference tonally, it was a great practice to render its subtlety. 

Towards the end, it got sunny, and it was very tricky, casting many shadows in the building. I just tried to ignore it. It was too late to change. 

I spent about 3 hours. I'm reasonably happy with this one. 

Oil on panel. 16 x 20 in.
