Downtown Tucson on a summer Sunday. There used to be glass globes on the lightposts. Looks loose and a little splashy, but I spent a lot of time drawing and then chasing the light again. Still want to do some touch ups. 8″x10″ on Arches 130# paper.
Number 16 in the 30-in-30. Resorting to rough studies to try to make quota. Washboard-looking clouds at sunrise were so awesome I tried to get that essence. Ended up in a perspective analysis. All stuff I already knew, but didn’t take time to get it straight in my head before putting brush to paper. 14″x11″
Painting number 6 in the 30-in-30 Challenge. Painted on the same day as “Turtle Pond Reflection,” This was my second painting of the day, kept my focus. We were painting on the University of Arizona campus and and classes didn’t resume until three days later so things were pretty quiet. 5″x7″. You name the price for original painting unframed!
Painting number 5 in the 30-in-30 Challenge. This was painted at another Tucson Plein Air Painters Society paint-out. Yet again an overcast day dimmed things. The turtles only came out when the sun did. 8″x10″. $40 for original painting unframed.
Painting number 4 in the 30-in-30 Challenge. Like “Gray Honeybee” this was painted on January 4 at Honeybee Canyon north of Tucson with the Tucson Plein Air Painters Society. This was my second painting–maybe lost focus but Honeybee is a great place to just enjoy the mountain views. 5″x7″. You name the price for original painting unframed!
Painting number 3 in the 30-in-30 Challenge. Painted on January 4 at Honeybee Canyon north of Tucson with the Tucson Plein Air Painters Society. Overcast day muted the scene but lots of interesting shapes. 5″x7″. $30 for original painting unframed.
Celebrated the new year with friends, food and a walk. Blue sky, snow-dusted mountains, cool temperatures; had to scrape frost from the car windows today. You can’t tell there’s snow on those mountains in the sketch, but there is!
