A sketch from the St. Vincent's Church off the Redwood Highway. I did more exploring than sketching on this trip.

St. Vincent's, an Italian Renaissance Mission-style church, was constructed in 1855 and is designated a California historical landmark. The state's oldest home for dependent children, the school began as an orphanage during the Gold Rush. St. Vincent's now provides residential care to boys ages seven to 17 with serious emotional and educational problems.

Great sketch Gerald! I've always found watercolors very appealing. I'll have to try it out myself someday. Oh yes and thanks for the info as well, very interesting. It's always nice with a little story to go along with the images:)

Take care,

Hans
