July’s Photos to Paint Challenge

Above is your July Photos to Paint challenge photo. It should come as no surprise that it is from our trip to Santa Barabara. One of the days we were there, we took a drive over to the Santa Barbara Mission. The subject photo was taken in one of the Mission’s inner courtyards. This scene was a little too hard to pass up. I loved the graveyard with the cross adorned stone wall in the background with a door leading to…?

It was an absolutely beautiful day as you can tell. The sun was warm but not overly hot. Since it was Memorial Day weekend, there was quite a gathering out on the front lawn of the mission, which added a festive atmosphere to the visit. Thanks again to all that participate in the challenge. I am looking forward to seeing how you interpret this one!

Please use the form below to submit your painting by the last day of July. Your picture should be a high-quality jpg image that is at least 480 pixels along its longest dimension at 72 pixels per inch.

    This is one gorgeous photo, Lee. I hope I can find the time to attempt this one. If not, I think I will want to do it sooner rather than later on my own speed! It is stunning. I am so in love with rock walls and buildings. They are just so exquisite!

    Glad you both like the photo! I hope to have more great images in the near future. My travel is going to get crazy this summer…literally going around the globe. Can’t wait to bring home more photos for you folks to paint!
