San Juan Capistrano


ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR
5" x 7"
archival CP paper

I was much taken by the Mission at San Juan Capistrano--I think I could have sketched and painted there for days. Here, you see the shadowy view through one of the buildings, a cool refuge within thick adobe walls. It's a place rich with history and feeling--explore it in person if you can, or check out their website: http://www.missionsjc.com/

This one was done as a demonstration for my upcoming North Light book, the 21st century version of Watercolor Tricks & Techniques. (The original version was done in 1988--many new techniques, materials and surfaces since then!) See what techniques you can discern here...





I only had time for this one sketch on-site, in my journal, and of course it's not for sale:


This painting is offered un-matted and unframed to keep costs down. It will come to you carefully wrapped via Priority Mail, in the US.
Insurance included in the shipping cost

  1. This is where I went to mass, in the older church. And though now a Buddhist, if I lived here, I would chose a Spanish mass and go frequently. Love your art . . .
