Plein Air Monday morning June 27th 2011 Near the Jardin

View of the Parrochia from the Gallery

Hi all, this week we'll continue haunting the Jardin for more interesting scenes. We'll meet at the studio at just before 9 am and proceed from there The weather has been unstable lately ,so if we get rain we'll paint in the interior patio upstairs..I should have cafe brewing ,bring your favorite thermal cup. See you soon. Donna

Some recent Watercolors , from the Streets of San Miguel June 2011

El Burro 11 x 15" w.c.  I found this guy hanging out in the shade after hauling "tierra' around all day from door to door. Usually you find  2 or 3 or more together, but this one was alone and enjoying the shade.What is a BURRO?? actually the Spanish term for a small donkey or ass......not to be confused with the "Mule" which is the cross between a male donkey and female horse! Now if I can just remember that for next time!
Calle Tecolote 'owl street' watercolor 10" x 12"- a great winding cobblestone street. I loved the shadows in this one.
From Blancas patio this wonderful scene.watercolor 12 x 14" sold

Plein air on Monday JUNE 20th - the Jardin - Meet at gallery 8:45am

A photo at the start of Monday's class June 13th 2011 Steve got some great pics of us painting I'll ask  him to send me a couple to add here.
Sun and shade in the jardin.There's always something new to paint here, so we'll continue exporing in and around the trees and plaza. We'll meet in the studio and go from there. please come before 9:00 about 8:45 would be best then we can get any early start. I saw a couple of scenes as I passed through the park today that I think will be fun to do. everyone did well on Cuna de Allende last Monday.

Catching up with some new pictures of the gallery/studio June 2011

From the teaching area looking through. It's a very cool space. Both sides have skylights so the natural light is great for showing the hung paintings and wonderful for painting too.It's much better in person but for those of you that aren't here right now you'll get a bit of a glimpse.
From the Gallery side looking toward the teaching space. The opening is looking over the Jardin.
