Last Mon. of October the 29th - plein air location

Moi! Contemplating a scene plein air. This was near Dolores Hidalgo.  Soo ..many decisions to make and so little time to do it in!Thought we would paint just inside "the Institute" this Monday at 9 :00 am. It was fun at Espinos corners last Monday. A bit chilly starting out. Haven't finished my painting yet but will post when finished. Donna

Monday Plein air and some new oils for October 2012

"Morning Shadows on Codo" oil 9 x 12" plein air. The colors were really interesting at this intersection. Couldn't resist the electric blue windows! This painting is from last Monday and we'll return to that area again  Monday morning OCT 22nd at 9:00 in front of Espinos  store at the start of CODO.
"Vendedora de Munecas" the Doll Seller, 24" x 20"  oil on canvas.

The vendors are really colorful, as colorful as the dolls they sell. I've wanted to paint this one for quite awhile. 

Oops, not an oil but a watercolor from this week in the studio "Sunny Window" 15 x 11" Fun making those warm and cool changes of colors in the shadows.

Monday am Plein Air Oct 15th on Codo 9:00 am

A morning photo looking up Calle Codo
Here's another one at the entrance of Codo with Zacateros going off to the left. Beware of the great divide! Here we have 2 views competing for our attention. If most of the right side was cropped off , this might make a decent painting. We'll have to see what we can do in the area.  Meeting at 9 am right around here. We'll try to stay on the shady side and it should be a nice morning. Those of you who aren't here are welcome to give the great divide a try. Let me know how it works out. Happy painting! Donna

October 8th plein air afternoon on Recreo

Butterfly  and Girasoles....beautiful at this time of year.
As stated in the title we'll be meeting in the afternoon on Recreo at 2:30 pm near the Bull Ring area. If not there, we'll be close by. Shouldn't be hard to find if you find yourself on Recreo, look for the guys wearing funny hats and squinting a lot and holding up strange squares!  We'll stick to the shady side of the street and hope for lots of sun. It's definitely been into a winter pattern this week, with clear skies . cool mornings and hot afternoons.Great painting conditions. The sunflowers (Girasoles) are so abundant this year beautiful to see fields and fields of flowers.
hope to see you all there. Vamanos  Donna
