Agua Caliente

Tucson, Az April 27th Ancient Oasis of the Desert

The Location

Agua Caliente is an oasis of naturally fed warm water springs that gush from the mountain side to form the ponds within the park. Since ancient time this area has been a spark of life in the harsh desert. One that has lasted the centuries. Surrounded by native palms and rugged mesquite trees the park is alive with birds and desert wildlife. The surroundings stirs your blood and you can’t help but feel connected on a deep level. Join me to paint this wonderful oasis in the Desert.

What we will learn

This 3 day workshop we will explore the fundamentals of Plein Air painting. Lectures and demonstrations will all take place outside and in the landscape. That is the best venue to discuss painting. Surrounded by what we will be painting. Using a limited palette and simplification of the landscape in both color and shape to create a convincing painting of the scene. Learn to see in shape and value instead of line and detail. Learn to use value and color to depict three dimensional space or depth. We will explore using larger brushes and economy of brushstrokes to work more quickly and accurately.

Class will start at 8:00 am where we will meet for a and go to 12:00 pm when we will break for lunch. We will continue to paint at 1:00 and continue through 5:00 pm.
