Saint Francis Church, oil on canvas 27x22cm
This study is a crop of an old church, maybe one of the oldest in Niterói(one of Rio de Janeiro´s neighbour cities). It was established in the XVIth or XVIIth Century and it is a precious example of Brazilian Colonial architecture, keeping in its interior rarities as an image of Saint Francis plated in gold and a Baptismal sink made by the Indians.
I intend to go back to this site as the reflective surface of its white walls in light as well as in shade are very appealing to paint.
