Kilborn Workshop–July 20, 2011


Rio Pueblo Landscapes

Wednesday was landscape day with the workshop group gathering southwest of Taos, overlooking a scenic canyon cut by the Rio Pueblo. Nearby the river flows into the Rio Grande.

Spring green foliage along the river banks glistened in the morning sunlight. The rocky canyon walls later appeared in the artists’ paintings in a multitude of colors. Everyone’s still trying to decide what the herd of animals on the other side of the gorge were – pronghorn antelope, elk, mule deer, sheep, goats? All agree they were not cows or horses. Will Kathy’s zoom lens give us an answer? Update – they were goats, which is what Bob said – right again.

After returning to the studio everyone got busy creating their individual Rio Pueblo interpretations. During the critique session the consensus was that Bob’s colorful rendition was complete. I bet he can’t help but add some final touches.
