I was walking my Border Collie, Harvey, along Western Avenue when I saw the most breathtaking sunset. The sky was parted by the almost horizontal, elongated clouds in hues of great shades of blue, pink, and some purples. As I stood there admiring the view, I couldn't help but notice the ruins of Pontefract Castle and the towers of All Saints Church in the distance. The sight was so beautiful that I had to capture it somehow.

I didn't have my camera with me, but I'm a painter, so I decided to paint it. When I got home, I sat at my easel and began working. It took me a few hours to complete, but I captured the beauty of the unusual cloud formation quite well in my painting.

Now, whenever I look at my painting of the Sky Above All Saints in Pontefract, I'm reminded of that beautiful evening and the feeling of awe and wonder that washed over me. It's a memory I'll cherish forever, and I'm so glad I was able to capture it on the paper illustration board.
