2015 Jan. 27th plein air.....and The Oratorio then and Now

Seems like another round at the plaza will be fun. We noticed last week that the light just got better and better as we painted, so we'll meet in the plaza at 3 pm. We'll be in the area near the fountain or there about.  If you don't see us there just spell around you'll find us, either Tom or myself . Maybe in front of the churches. There are a lot of possibilities, shade and benches to paint from. If you're definitely coming let me know so I will watch for you.  Sun hat, view finder , all your supplies? See you soon. I'll post photos later.....Donna
 We probably won't be painting the church but just wanted to show everyone what it used to look like in this part of the Plaza Civica.

From Insurgentes heading towards the Plaza Civica This is from about 2008 before they painted the  Oratorio in ORANGE, YELLOW an RED! What were they thinking??

This is the Oratorio Church from the Plaza Civica. Pre- 2009,  pre- paint job.
And here it is now!  I like color but.....not really fond of this version. :( !!
