2015 Tues. Feb 17 Plein air in the Jardin

Al Lado del Jardin by Tom Dickson west side of Jardin SOLD
This is the west side of the Jardin, which is where we will be meeting on Tues afternoon at 2 pm We can locate by the arches either under them or near them. We'll scout around but that's the general location .. weather permitting , the forecast is partly cloudy. Hopefully it will change to sunny by then. Really overcast we won't bother, it will be too dull. Hope to see y'all on Tuesday. This will be the last plein air for this month as we will be doing our plein air workshop the following week. Back on schedule 3rd of March.
Here's a view from last week on Chiquitos late afternoon

2015 FEB. 3rd 1:30 pm. Calle Garita above Barranca fountain

On calle Garita looking towards the Fountain at Hospicio and Barranca
 UPDATE NOTE  It looks "iffy" for today, mostly cloudy.  :( :(
We'll wait and see but Thursday is supposed to be clear, maybe a morning scene on Thurs as an alternative. I've got classes in the afternoon but morning free. Let me know if you're interested.
This will be a bit of a challenge but an intriguing vista.There are a few spots along this street that look great so we'll be able to spread out along the calle. Maybe next week we'll hit Juarez park and the Candelaria flower displays. So we'll meet here this Tues Feb. 3rd at  1:30 pm (that's when I took this photo, walking down to the gallery.) We'll have to quickly lay in the lights and darks. Bring your camera, view finder etc. 
*special note about this location in centro Garita starts out as Cuadrante (by the restaurant "10/ 10 Pie" and going uphill, turning into Hospicio, then when it jogs at the  Barranca  fountain it continues uphill becomes  Calle Garita. Very easy to see when you look at a map of San Miguel. Garita runs between Barranca and Salida a Queretero  Donna

We did paint  with Nancy and Wyllis Heaton and here's Tom's plein air from way down the hill at the fountain
