The Stations of the Cross exhibition at St Edmund's Church, Roundhay

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Eighth Station: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem
Watercolour and ink on paper

This is the first time I have depicted a religious subject and decided to include eight women of differing ages who Jesus met on his way to his crucifixion; the eighth station, or time he stopped on his way to the cross. I had to be careful with everyone's expressions and to ensure with the composition that Jesus was the focus of everyone's attention.
