St. Vincent's School/Church, San Rafael CA

(9"x12" gouache on watercolor board)

Rained all week, but extremely SUNNY during Sunday's paintout.


  1. what a stunning work, Gerald! Marvellous values and color, warmer and softer-looking (more attractive!) than the original scene. I love it!

  2. Thanks so much, the photo is so blown out, but that's the beauty of plein air... it's so different in person with the change of lighting and shadows :)

  3. This is such a beautiful sketch! I love the colors and quality of light!
