Watercolor Painters from Antigua

Watercolors from Antigua

Watercolors from La Antigua Guatemala can be found and bought in just about every tourist town in Central America. In Calle del Arco you can find many of the watecolor painters sitting on their little stool and with their portable studio over their knees.

Although, I do not like pinturas costumbristas, costumbrism paintings, many people seem to find them irresistible. Nevertheless, I am happy to know many of these painter are able to make a living doing what they love; not many people can say that, right?
