I've been doing plein air paintings for three years now and just tried my first church piece. The local Catholic church, Holy Family, is just a block from my home. It's a spectacular old Spanish Baroque building, completed in 1928. Our Saturday paint-out group met there on a warm day, all of us looking for some shade. I chose a view from under a tree across the street and tried a gouache piece. With such an ornate building, I thought I would need the flexibility of the opaque paint!
