Becky Joy plein air painting the Superstitions.

Superstitions  11x14 oil plein air 

I went out yesterday to the Superstition with a group painting. This is my painting from the afternoon. I still need to photograph the first one from the morning. It got a little warm out there in the afternoon. Then I left a little too late and driving across town I got stuck in the rush hour traffic. Another good reason for being an artists. I would hate to think about having to go through that every day.

Anyway, I broke down the different planes in large colored masses and then grouped the plants in the front for the design that I wanted. There were paths leading down this bank which drew me to this particular scene. I just changed the design. Overall, I was pleased with the day for painting. A good day!

I will be having a one day workshop at the Superstitions on April 15  Email me or go to my website at

Talk to you all later,
