VSW: Mexican Church


Growing up, I attended a Mexican mass at the San Juan Capistrano mission church.


The shapes of Mexican architecture and the sounds of the language feel like home.


The colors are also my colors in our home, warm and bright.


I also tried this with no lines, just watercolor.
It was fun to try, but every time I do these things
I come back to loving line work and color, both!

How about you?  Line work, color only, or both?

    Your artwork is absolutely gorgeous–it fills my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give. I also love lineart and color. I have done a few without the lineart first–but it is a rare endeavor. 😀

  5. To me, it all depends on the subject. Buildings are all line and just call for linework.
