San Fernando Cathedral by Texas Watercolor Artist John York, 15 x 22 inches, unframed
The Cathedral of San Fernando, or the Cathedral of Our Lady of Candelaria and Guadalupe in downtown San Antonio, Texas. I painted this on the spot during a visit to San Antonio in 2018. I used a chopstick and India Ink directly on the paper without any pencil guidelines and finished with washes of watercolor. The ashes of the Alamo's most famous heroes are enshrined in the Cathedral. Some school children who were watching me paint jumped and cheered as I finished...what fun!
