Last week I was at a painting workshop in Taos, New Mexico with about 15 other painters, all from the Denver area and led by Kim English. All of our work was done outdoors from nature. Sometimes we also had models pose for us so our work involved the figure in the landscape. We painted in Nicolai Fechin's garden in Taos, in the Taos Plaza, along the banks of the Rio Grande and in the small town of Arroyo Seco. So often in my painting life I am working alone, and it is one of life's great pleasures to paint with an enthusiastic group of artists.
But enough talk...above are 3 of the oil sketches I did while in New Mexico.
