July 30th 2012 Painting in the Jardin plein air 9:00

" Down by the Market "oil  9 x12 in. This is a plein air in oils from  a couple of weeks back. I really like this funky corner at the entrance to the market.

"Bajando Calle Piedras China", 11 x 15" watercolor - love this beautiful windy street. Very steep. At the bottom it narrows up and many vehicles are actually too wide to get through. Lots of scrapes on the walls! 

It's a busy summer season so far. Lots of students in the studio painting in both watercolors and oils. Plein air students are rarer birds. I have also 3 young folks with another one about to join them. The girls Grace ,Emma and Lucy have been working in acrylics and watercolors.I'll get some photos of them for next week.
We'll be meeting in the Jardin at 9:00 am,Monday Jul 30th near the bandstand. Should be fun. Although Tom and I have  painted many scenes from the Jardin, there's always one more ! See you there. Donna

Mon. Julio 23 2012 San Miguel plein air

This is calle Huertas with just a bit of El Mantial showing on the left of the paper banners. Our plein air will be just up this alley to the next intersection. At Garza.
Hi to all you eager plein air painters. Our new location for Monday's plein air will be very near last  week's .This time near the corner of Huertas and Calle Garza. If you're coming  up from Barranca , Huertas goes up just beside the Bar El Mantial and a short block up, runs into Garza. Calle Garza also comes down from Salida a Quertero if you're on foot and runs into Huertas.I think it's one way up if you're driving. Right at that corner  are several possible scenes. Weather permitting we'll meet there at 9 am. Hope to see you soon. Sunhat (hoping for sun) , camera, snacks, and all.
PS a bit of  trivia Garza means Egret! There's a rock musician in town called David Garza! Hmmm  David Egret !  I guess there's already Donald Duck.   happy painting! Donna

San Miguel plein air Mon. July 16 / 12 9:00 am

A recent watercolor Amigas de Oaxca 16"x20" $500 US
For Monday July 16 - plein air -  (hopefully we'll not get rained out) We'll meet at a little church yard off Calle Piedras China. This the narrow street that descends steeply off Salida de Queretero, just past the Mirador as your leaving centro. About 1/2 way down Piedras China there's a little church . Off hand I can't remember the name of it. But if you can find Piedras China you can find the church. We'll meet there at around 9:00 am Should be fun- it's an interesting area. Bring a hat, camera , painting kit, snack, water and don't forget brushes! Like me last week!  :- (  Donna
