A picture from last week the San Antonio Church in SMA

Sandra painting last Monday at the San Antonio Church. We had wild weather but 9 enthusiastic painters took on the challenge! Tomorrow- mon. Feb 20th plein air is in front of the Oratorio Church and hopefully we'll have weather fit for painting!  Just bring what you need for one morning of painting. Pick brushes suitable to the size you are painting and leave the rest at home. Keep your equipment light and simple. You'll have more energy for your  painting . See you there, 9:30 am  Donna

Note: the Feb 24th. to Mar 2nd. Workshop Is Full

"Luz y Sombra"  Guanajuato 
12x10.5 ins. watercolor

Below are a pair of paintings I did of the same subject as demo's for my watercolor and oil classes.
Same silla, same geranio but I think it's kind of interesting to compare the two. The first is the watercolor.

"Geranios" 15x11 ins. watercolor
"La Silla"  Cafe Buen Dia  12x9 in. oil on panel
"Colorful Walkway in Guanajuato" 12x 9 in. oil on panel

"Summer Day" 11x10.5 in. watercolor

I'm very busy at the moment with classes - all of which are full with waiting lists and the February/March Workshop is full as well. We will be having another in San Miguel but I haven't had time to focus on the details yet. Things invariably slow down in April and May here, so I'll have time to concentrate. Also, the Plein Air Meetup group has really taken off. We had a great day in Comonfort on Saturday with a lot of members showing up. We painted in the morning around the town center and some of us stayed for the afternoon and did another - tiring but very enjoyable. We didn't see a single other gringo all day and the town people are wonderful - friendly and polite. We were a great source of entertainment for them!
