2015 JUNE 17 PLEIN AIR on Recreo

This is a scene I completed recently near the Oratorio Church where the buses come in on Insurgentes. oil on panel 14 " x 18" 
Meeting on south Recreo going towards El Charco and Juarez Parque for our plein air on Wed June 17th at 9:30  am   This is a fun street and a variety of scenes to paint along this street, the trick will be to find a scene you like and a place that isn't blocking the passage way too much to paint from Don't forget your camera, and supplies We will have shade on the east side of this street. If it's cloudy we may choose another spot but we will meet here first. If it's threatening to rain then we will cancel or paint indoors. Send me a message if you have any questions . You will need a small folding stool if you are doing watercolors.
