ranchos de taos

Two more views of the Ranchos de Taos church. In the top one--the view painted by O'Keeffe--I used glazing, starting with yellow and adding layers through blue and violet; though, as you can see from the runbacks, I put down some glazes before the previous was fully dry, which is a must if you want a smooth finish (which I don't particularly ...).
These are small and careful. I like the subject and like to do them big and sloppy! Maybe when I have more space and time.

Oh, these are great!

Thanks for answering my question last post. I can see wanting to paint this type of (is it mission?) architecture. In a way it IS organic, I think, even though man-made. said...
