Cowboy Balladeers by the Lavanderia

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, plein air watercolor painting

Waxy China marker, watercolors on watercolour paper
2014

These balladeers in cowboy dress sang to the many tourists who dropped in to see the historic outdoor wash house or Lavanaderia as we worked on our plein air paintings. I had finished my oils stick painting and had time to capture this couple in my small watercolor block while I waited for the others to finish their works. A grand day, complete with singers and audience!
