Klimmen church

The things we do for art.

My wife sings in the church choir St. Caecilia in Hulsberg, and they sang the mass today in Klimmen, another small village near where I live.
When they prepared and rehearsed a little, I went out in the early morning chilly mist to draw the graveyard in front of the church.
There are some beautiful old graves there.
I detest the imported invention of Halloween (we have "all soul's day" later this week to honour the deceased in a serious way) but I admit this drawing is quite fitting for that occasion.

In the end I had quite stiff fingers of the chilly and wet cold.

Just before mass I made this quick sketch of the choir rehearsing the opening song.
Both drawing took between 10-15 minutes to make.
