VSW: Luis Barragán, 2

Second installment in the series on my favorite architect, Barragán.

To see the first installment, go here.

Casa Barragán, above and below.
In reality Opera Pink is not quite the right pink but it it the brightest pink I own
and so it had to be the right pink!

Below, the lovely water pool outside one room.

Chapel of the Capuchinas is so beautiful, above and below.
I have not done it justice… The colors are amazing!
The rooms are infused with warm light.

Above the sketch was a direct watercolor sketch.

Above and below, Luis Barragán’s Cuadra San Cristobal,
an amazing horse ranch located northeast of Mexico City in a once rural area.
All the wild Barragán colors, and water, a huge wading pool with a huge fountain that gushes water so the noise is constant.  One of the places I would most like to visit..

A corner in the Federal District, Barragán‘s neighborhood…
Some of his colorful paints are a reflection of his culture.
I LOVE Mexican culture and grew up with these colors.

A full length feature on Luis Barragán can be seen from a synopsis page from the Barragán Foundation.
