Mon Dec 24th Plein air location and new watercolors

"Afternoon Plaza Civica"  my watercolor 11" x 15 " A great afternoon painting last week with perfect weather. We were joined by Yvonne, Bill and Isaiah.
" En la Plaza Civica" oil 12 " x 9 " by Tom.  Very interesting to see our two different interpretations of the plaza last Monday.  
So next Monday the 24th  at 12:30 pm - we will be  meeting on Calle Hernandez Macias in front of the Bellas Artes building. Don't forget your cameras for reference photos and  gathering interesting pics of folks passing through. Some great views across the street and along H Macias. The Bellas Artes center is still under repair so we can't access the courtyard yet.
And here's another watercolor I've done recently ;
"Restaurante en la Calle Hidalgo"   watercolor 15 " x 11" This a second floor restaurant with an attractive view from the street. I haven't tried eating there yet, so can't report on the food. Feliz Navidad everyone , Happy Painting ! and thanks for viewing my blog.  Donna

Plein air on Monday Dec 17 Plaza Civica 12:30pm

The Oratorio Church in front of the Plaza Civica is always a challenge to draw and paint. We 'll see what we can find on Monday at 12 :30. Most of us will  be doing watercolors this time and we'll be meeting on location.
Sometimes it's a good idea to isolate some small area of a large complicated scene and concentrate on getting the essence of that part. Simplify and squint alot See you on Monday 
PS new winter schedule is posted. Just  hit on Art students link /Classes info at top of page.
