Collection of Susan Hacking, Vancouver, BC.
A friend and I visited El Charco del Ingenio, to find something to paint. We settled upon Ruinas de la Hacienda which is part of a ruined hacienda overlooking the presa in the botanical garden. I completed a watercolour sketch which along with three photographs I took back to my San Miguel studio. Later, I decided to develop a larger acrylic of the building. I have completed many dilapidated and ruined buildings because they hold much more interest, particularly when they are not "square", but are teetering or in disrepair.

On turning around through 180 degrees, I saw the portal which I also painted en plein air. This is a 7″ X 5″ watercolour sketch.
