Watercolor of the day ~ San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

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

This fanciful watercolor depicts a view of San Miguel de Allende, a vibrant and architecturally rich city in the central highlands of Mexico. The composition is loosely based on a photograph provided by my friend and fellow artist Maria, who grew up a few hours away and was kind enough to share her images of this wonderfully colorful place. Inspired by my own travels in Mexico, I’ve brought plenty of bright hues and fluid shapes to the party and had a lot of fun doing it.

Wouldn’t you love to be there right now? ¡Sí, vamos amigos!
