"Oh Christmas Tree"

"Oh Christmas Tree"   9 x 12 oil on canvas board by Terry d. Chacon

Terry painting at the Mission Inn Festival of Lights Dec. 8, 2010.

Each year our Plein Air group (Plein Air Artists of Riverside) paints in Dec. downtown Riverside, CA around the Mission Inn.   A painting is available anywhere you look.   This is my 3rd year of painting and I am building quite a collection of night time painting scenes of the beautiful lights, horse & carriages, people walking, talking, visiting Santa and just having a great time.   I hope to be at the Mission Inn painting every Wed. evening until Christmas.   Come by and watch me paint.   

Until next time,  ENJOY THE ART!  Terry d. Chacon

  1. This sounds lovely. I'm itching to get out and paint but it's been only in the 20's here this week.

  2. Interesting. I never considered painting plein air by night. Aren't colours and values more difficult to gauge? How do you adapt?
