Desert Color Study (Red Rocks Park, Las Legas, NV), Oil on Canvas, 8x10

Painting in Vegas

I have a few new plein air studies to share from my recent trip to Las Vegas. To be honest, not my favorite city, but I was there for the 1st Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo. It was held at the Red Rocks Casino & Spa. I’d stayed there before, but had no idea there was so much to paint just a few miles away. I’ve always found the subtle color variations in the desert landscape inspiring. I hope you enjoy–and if you’re an artist, check back in a week, as I’m planning an extended blog post on the convention, complete with videos of demos.
