Guatemala – Day 3

We met early for breakfast and headed out to a new site. We were seeking the early morning light. The morning was clear and the mountains and the volcano were clearly lit and outlined with the morning sun’s rays. We set off to paint the San Francisco compound.

Today's trio of paintings I sketched.

I painted the arch at the north entrance to the church grounds. I spent a good amount of time on it before a tourist break and lunch.

In the afternoon I sketched some vendors we hired to pose as they sat by their baskets. Most people are shy and don’t want to be photographed. Some are more agreeable if we hire them to let us paint them.

We wanted to paint someone who posed for one of our group members in the morning but we didn’t come to an agreement so I painted a cupula instead.

These pieces are unfinished. They are more of a sketch to remind me of colors and what I want to convey with the finished piece but you can get an idea of what I have in mind.

We are taking a break before dinner. Tomorrow we head out to the lake. We have to see about buying more canvases. Some of us have been quick to capture scenes we like. Traveling with wet canvases is fun — not really. I’ve gotten more paint on myself than I usually do.
