Watercolor of the day ~ Sandstone Lore

Sandstone Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

This painting features a favorite motif of mine — the remarkable Wukoki Pueblo from the Wupatki National Monument in Arizona. It’s one of a few surviving dwellings built a thousand years ago by the Sinaqua people using the red layered sandstone that the land provided them.

This time I went back to my original photographs from 1984 and recreated the scene as faithfully as possible while applying a classic impressionist style borrowed from the 20th century American painter A. B. Davies in his later watercolors. I’ve been looking to try this style for a while now and this seemed like the perfect subject. I hope you enjoy it!
