In Teotihuacan just out side of Mexico City climbing the pyramids we discovered the source of Mexico's vibrant colors. A local told us that back in the day (100-200 A.D.) there is evidence the pyramids were very brightly painted with pigments from the local vegetation. His demonstration was so cool and surprisingly vibrant I had him do it again so I could video it. Griffin Klement is my translator. Gracias Griffin
I love the idea of pulling a plant out of my garden and drawing with it's nectar.
