These are two practice watercolors. I'm working on control of the medium but still trying to give up control at the same time. They're over worked and I have a very long way to go. Thanks to a class with David R. Becker, I'm enjoying the trip .
Speaking of which- the paintings are done from photos from a trip to Barcelona in 2010. The top one is the old Cathedral in the Gothic Quarter and the one below it is in Antoni Gaudi's Sagrada Familia. It struck me how this cathedral builder is a living link to those nameless artists who labored centuries ago. I'm also reminded of the book Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett – a great read.
