Carfax panorama

A few days ago I posted my initial drawing of the church tower at Carfax in Oxford.

Carfax is the local name for this old crossroads which is sometimes regarded as the centre of Oxford. The church tower is the tower of St. Martin’s Church. Surprisingly enough this local landmark is what is left of an older church that was demolished at the end of the 19th century and the present clock with its ‘quarterboys’ are on the side of the tower that was largely on the interior of the church.

The above, progressing on from my earlier drawing, is a more complete drawing of the side of the tower and adjacent buildings.

I have expanded this to include a panoramic view of Carfax and out along the High Street. Here is my extended drawing.

And a simple watercolour of the above…
