Spanish Mission and Shattered House

Spanish Mission
Sorry that it's been a while since I've posted. Maybe I should just work out a schedule and stick to it, huh? To make up for it, here's two creations to share for MOC Monday. While perusing some of the latest creations posted, two in particular caught my eye, and they happened to be created by the same guy, Jorge Barros. The first is an adobe style Spanish Mission as seen in "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly". The use of the curved blocks to form the back and the front around the bell and cross are spot on. I also like the ceiling beams that are sticking out of the front face of the building. To complete the western feel, there's a cactus, wagon wheels, and, of course, a cow skull.

Shattered House

The second creations is titled Shattered House. The house also appears to be a western style or maybe even Mediterranean type house, but in a dilapidated state. I particularly like the missing bricks on the corner and how random blocks are strewn about. The reddish brown bricks in the middle of the white wall give off the impression of stucco or adobe falling away. With the architectural highlights like the red tile roof and the diamond accents, and great use of color, I kind of wish I could see what the house looked like before it fell into disrepair.
