Tucson Plein Air Painters Society is having a demo (Walter Porter at 8 AM) and wet paint sale and opening at 11 AM at Aqua Caliente Park on Valentines Day! If you want to see live action painting, the latest in plein air and find out about the best painting spots near and far, make a plan to come by.
Continue on down for a few selections of one-shot plein air:
I’ve spent this winter with friends in Saguaro Park East. I like the afternoon light there best.
We cruise the loop road until something looks good. Sometimes we must perch right next to the pavement, endangering our lives! Such are the sacrifices of the plein air habit. Skies are moody with winter storms. Light is dramatic and fast changing.
We’d love to see you (this winter has been especially good for plein air)….but, if you can’t make it for the opening, stop by another time. The water levels at Agua Caliente are back up, ducks and other birds and waterfowl are present and you’ll be sure to have a relaxing yet stimulating time.
