This month, we are painting the Basílica de Guadalupe in Mexico city, with images from Margaret Metcalfe (and a little help from Google maps).
I am also trying, with resistance, the no line work first.
I place a couple of watercolor pencil lines in for guidance.
I find I end up liking a little bit, a piece of the whole, but never the whole!
You can see I gave up on this one…
I rarely do that — they are like my kids, I am committed once I start!
Images graciously offered for use
to our Virtual Sketchwalk group by Margaret Metcalfe.

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
I also created an accompanying Flickr group!

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
So glad you’re using the Hahnemühle Watercolor Book!
And loving it. I’ve used the A5, but this is the first time into the A4.
