Blinded By The Light: Painting with TPAPS

We are across from the pima cotton fields of Marana near the regional airport off of Sanders Road…painting. Sunrise and wetland views are grand and dramatic with pronounced contrast.

I like this scene but decide on the much more challenging and highly unrecommended view of the actual sunrise…

Hope no permanent damage to the retinas was caused in the painting of this one. A cathartic act.

Back up with the group on the rise, looking across the scape at the reflective waters of the Santa Cruz and misty “Ragged Top” in the Tucsons.

An Historic site, no less.


Gay and I are working on the same view from about 8:30-11 AM.




Many thanks to the Tucson Plein Air Painters Society for opening up their paint-outs to non-members (like me) through January. Had such a good time with such great painters.
