We ended up at the Miller Creek trailhead and spent the day with Rincon Peak and trickling water.

Afternoon found us in the shade of a cottonwood.

We talked about threes: Three shapes, three values and three edge qualities:  Here is a mini-chronicle of line, shape, edge and color in sketchbook. A bit of a gathering information/visual journaling approach:

Our final look-see of the afternoon’s work. We are a diverse group, using different media with different approaches. We learn a lot from each other. All-in-all, we agreed we’d solved some difficult issues in our final work of the day:

Thanks everyone for a great day! We have a little more time left this Spring to get out and plein air-don’t miss it!

This Sycamore is just about ready to leaf out.  Pretty amazing.  Come back next week to see the entire scene changed.
