Abandoned church

This church, the back of which is on the left in the painting, has been vacant for some time. On the front, gaping holes where the leaded windows once were let in all manner of weather and creature. Rotting from the inside out, sadly. I wasn't able to finish alla prima (in one go) because the sun burst through my heavy clouds and, well, ruined everything. Luckily the gloom returned a few days later and I wrapped it up. Below are scans of the interrupted start and the completed piece.
