Plein air this Monday morning in the Jardin Jan. 23rd 2012

Morning Shadows.From last week looking towards the Monjas from edge of the Jardin.
Painting in front of the Jardin L. to R.  Bob , Tom's ptg on  easel ,Carolyn, Blue hat Donna and Yvonne with her hat on backwards!
Here's our group painting last Monday. The street was blocked off in front of the Presidencia so we took advantage of the location. We painted the scene looking towards the Monjas down Canal. It proved to be pretty difficult and a challenging subject . We enjoyed the morning and Bob tried out his new plein air rig he bought from Tom.
 NOTE :Time change for Monday afternoon watercolors: 2 til 5 pm. Begins  in 1 week.This will give me a little more time between the morning plein air group and the wc. class in the afternoon. Hope this will be all right with everyone.It will make a big difference for me. Thanks Donna
