VSW: Basílica de Guadalupe, 1


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.
