my vacation: Santa Fe - Pink Adobe

Pink Adobe - 7 x 10 - watercolor
This building had a sign that said 'Pink Adobe. I think it was a little restaurant and gift shop. It was directly across the street from San Miguel chapel, the oldest church in America - right in downtown Santa Fe. We sat on the concrete embankment next to the old church and painted Pink Adobe. It was fairly early in the morning and the sun was shining on the building. It seems so many buildings in Santa Fe are this lovely pinkish red color. I mixed Burnt Sienna and Alizarin Crimson to get this color. Here's a photo of the actual building. Here's Allan's painting of the building.
