Architecture in Watercolor Paintings

Beautiful buildings that are made even more individual, thanks to the style of the artist.
Artist and Architect Sarah Quarelle was introduced to art at a young age by her mother. As you can see it stuck and this is the calibre of the work she is creating now.

After her architectural studies, she specialised in heritage and we can see it form the choice of some of the buildings below. She still works as an Architect, but expresses her love for art and specifically for watercolor paintings, in her spare time.

These paintings show a different way of applying imagination to a piece of art. The size proportions and details are fixed, there is no way of representing the real thing without those constants. The only thing left, are colors and this is where Sarah shines.

If you look at the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle painting, there are two iterations, one at an earlier stage. i did this so that you could see how the colors are layered before the final architectural details are painted in.
