I am not usually painting in graveyards and I only did it for a commission. That said, there is nothing sinister about the graveyard of St John Baptist & St Helen church in Wroughton (The village of Wroughton is located 3 miles south of Swindon, England).
St John Baptist & St Helen church graveyard - Watercolour (38 x 30 cm) by Benoit Philippe
The churchyard covers around five acres grass, trees (including some old yew trees with wide branches) and wild areas.
The historic church building contains a few features from the 12th century, was extended in the 14th and 15th centuries, and altered in the 19th century. Around the church are centuries old headstones.
