St. Mary's

I'm always driving around looking for something different to paint and this surely was. The brickwork was so unusual that I had to stop the car and pull out my moleskin to paint this. It was done in ink & watercolor.

Desiree - Thanks. Yes, the yellow bushes are forsythia. That was what I was driving around to find in a good spot to paint when I ran across this spot.

Lin - Thank you! I enjoyed doing this one.

Gorgeous, Joan. You do the building details, especially the brick so nice and great perspective. The flowers are also lovely and enhances the structure.
