Tucson - AZ - USA [RESULTS]

Postby donnam » Sun Mar 30, 2008 1:26 am

It was another perfect day in Tucson--Sunshine, Blue Skys and 84 degrees and we had a total of five sketchers. Left to Right: Mary, Alanna, Sandie (in back), Norma, Donna.

There was also an art show at the Tucson Museum of Art today. Here is one photo from it. I must confess, I did buy something, but not from these people.

The courthouse in Tucson is one of the most beautiful old Spanish buildings here--I think we all sketched it from various angles, but here is a photo.

Now for my sketches:

Great sketches and nice to see photos too! Amazing that you guys could walk around in t-shirts and shorts while we, in Sweden, had to wear mittens, long-johns, boots, thick winter jackets and try to keep warm with hot cocoa and coffee...

Thanks for sharing your great work!

Is it possible that people can have such nice weather when we live in darkness and ice? It feels travelling a bit, by looking at your photos and beautiful drawings! Thanks for sharing and put a litte sunlight in my daily life :D

Here is my version of the courthouse shown in the backdrop of the photo submitted by Donna.

This is a house in downtown Tucson with much of what is uniqe in Tucson.

An example of some of the flora in our lovely desert.

A quiet, off the beaten path piece of heaven. Much of the desert is in full bloom.

They gathered at my feet, I could not ignore their willingness to pose.

Here is my stab at "The Court House". I used photoshop to give an idea of how blue our sky is here in Tucson.
