Eastbury Manor

I drew this view from life, on a warm May day in Compton, near Guildford, in the UK, using a Copic brush pen and a handful of Pigma Microns.

The manor, a red brick pile crowned by a forest of chimneys, is now a retirement home. The triangular spire behind it belongs to the ancient church of Saint Nicolas, whose old graveyard overlooks the retirement home's gardens.
