San Sebastian Church Interior in Watercolor

What initially was intended to be just a casual quick sketch became a longer project. It took 4 separate visits of about 3 hours each to finish this as the pictures could not capture what I felt of the place. I even had the BluPrint magazine with HDR pictures. After realizing also that painting in such a dim environment, I was having difficulty working on the details. Finally, being prepared on the 3rd visit with a clipping reading LED light, I managed in getting it done.

This all-steel end of the 19th century neo-gothic church was a delight to keep coming back to, with its intricate detail. I'm still not satisfied with this illustration as I want to show it with its lofty ceiling.
