|"Tumacacori Jacal" 9x12, oil - private collection|
For those of you looking for a warm-weather-getaway, I still have spaces left in my Tubac, Arizona, oil plein air painting workshop. Tubac, located in the Sonoran Desert, is one of the earliest settlements in Arizona and is home to the Tumacacori Mission, which was established in 1691 and is now a National Historic Park, and the Presidio, a fort founded in 1752 and now a State Park. Besides painting at these historic places, we'll paint Tubac's colorful streets and its mountain views.
The workshop is oil-only and for intermediate-advanced painters. It runs Tuesday-Friday, January 24-27. That's next week! Price is $395.
We'll be based at the Floating Stone Inn & Aqua Spa, which is also offering lodging to students at a 10% discount. The Inn occupies the historic Poston Estate and sits in Old Town Tubac, with many interesting shops and restaurants.
If you're interested in joining us, contact Kathy Reyes, organizer, right away at 520-820-2416.
Here are some images to whet your appetite. The painting at the top, by the way, is a demonstration I did during last year's workshop.
