I’ve approached these buildings, which are part of the St. Mary’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception complex, dozens of times. Needing a break from bidding I stole away to sit in the car (easier to lay watercolors out) and do two sketches.
It was nice to be able to see the buildings without the tree leaves!
A little bit of Italy in Oregon . . .
Next time I will take the time to tackle giving the brickwork texture.
I admit to having never seen the church entrance.
I like the tower and the round shape of the building next to it.
