One day in the Yellow sage--Chimesa.

 It was a cold start to a wonderful week of art with a very giving teacher.  Lorenzo Chavez really tries to give you ALL the information he can, spends time at your easal, and tries hard to get across to you what he thinks is important about plein-air painting. You can ask him anything, he is very knowledgable.  When explaining shadows, he was able to actually show us with actual sunlite and shadow the color shadow is as it falls on the land. It was amazing. We had driven down to where I live, lower in elevation, as it was a bit warmer that day.  We spent the day much warmer trying to design paintings that began with large shapes, interesting lines leading you around the design, and contrast.
