New Sweden Church

This is a plein air painting of New Sweden Church near Austin, TX. I discovered the church while biking the area. It sits atop a high hill overlooking pastures in all directions and is a monument to the early Swedish settlers who farmed the immediate area. I am reposting this painting to mark the tenth anniversary of this blog. This was this blog’s first post, ten years ago! The blog has evolved over time to mostly contain demonstrations for my watercolor students. I really appreciate the over 500 followers who have gravitated here. Thank you. Onward!
