|"After the Storm," Ranchos at Sunset, 14" by 21" 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper|
Everybody paints the church of St. Francis at Ranchos de Taos--from Georgia O'Keeffe. My Dad drew it twice at least in the depths of the Depression, and I have those framed.
I've tried before, and one of the them I'd framed several years ago.
|Previous painting, but I'll use the frame and mat|
I tried earlier this month to replace the old painting, using the same mat and frame, and failed on the last step--the sky.
So this time, I started with the sky, and then forgot the basic of watercolor, start with light. I did the sky first, this time, but forgot about the snow until later. But I'm sorta happy with this version, or you wouldn't be seeing it.
Here's the story of that painting, from the beginning.
