PUERTO QUETZAL, GUATEMALA, watercolor
South American Cruise #8
"The land of eternal Spring" is this place advertised. With tropical rain forests and the spirit of the Mayan civilization, the unique culture of Guatemala is a combination of 22 Mayan ethnicities, Ladinos and Garifunas. Sugar is one of the largest industries of the country. Antigua, Guatemala, is one of the most popular destinations. Beautiful weather, I painted this small watercolor alla primma, in plain-air.
