My favourite sound huh? Well I have a few- like running water (fountain or stream or ocean) or those HUGE windchimes hanging in my local garden centre.
But the reason for the latter is that I love CHIMES. All kinds of chimes- but especially BELLS.
This is a (not so great) picture of my parent's local church. It is less than 5 minutes walk from them, and every Thursday from the age of 10, I would hear the bell ringers practise. I loved that sound... it was heard again on Sundays and at weddings- and my favourite chime is the peal- all the bells in order from highest to lowest, repeated over and over...
So since I can't draw the bells (no photo and 3000 miles is a LONG way to travel to get them AND I don't think they'd let my parents take one lol) I drew the bell tower and the West end of the church.
I had to adjust the colour in my photo editing software so it was closer to what I painted- which was a lot yellower than the real thing... still getting used to my lovely luscious new paints ;))
