Paraty Colonial Church

From the Pacific NW to the coast of Brazil
So this is what was under the map in a recent post about our Paraty Pity Party. I had seen so many pictures, I couldn't help myself. I just had to see if I could sketch the beautiful colonial church. That arched part is mighty tricky and I can't imagine the challenge it would be from another viewpoint.

We have traveled to Madeira, Lisbon, and the Mediterranean coast of Portugal. Those memories added to a combined overview of several photos led to this interpretation of the scene.


  1. Wow! I never would have guessed you weren't really here when you painted that, Michele!

    1. Thanks, Tina. I followed your Flickr stream, posts by other friends and the official blog and was inspired. I thought your sketch from Liz Steele's workshop was fantastic. And it was featured on the USkParaty2014 blog, too! Have fun, home safe. Can't wait to hear your adventures.
