St. Michael's Santa Fe

This sketch had to sit with me awhile! I hated it before Martha gave me a few ideas about how to improve upon it. Isn't it nice when someone cares enough to give critiscim? The end result is that the painting was saved from the recycling bin!

There is something to sketch on every corner in Santa Fe! This is around the corner from Canyon Road.

I really like this! Glad you posted it.
Sometimes I sketch something that I plan on never showing anyone --- but the next day it looks totally different.

I think this looks terrific. I'm sure there is a lot more to the school than this bit but to do it all risks losing the mood you have here.

This is really good! Now, I'm curious what the improvments were :)

I, too, wonder what wasn't right about it before Martha critiqued it for you. It's a lovely strong sketch.

I got a few questions about what advice Martha gave me...She suggested I add the dark area at the top interior of the tower. I also had not continued the clouds behind the tower, so I did that. And, I was unhappy with the tree---she suggested I continue the tree to the right, making it less uniform. Hope that answers the question! Lisa

I just happened to be surfing by, and I've enjoyed looking at your art. Of the pieces I've seen this is my favorite. You seem to have captured the cathedral well. Water color scares me.
