Roland Lee paints outdoors at the Kayenta Desert Bloom Art Festival while Linda and Dave Johannessen and Joan and John Mangels give advice.
I was invited to be one of the guest artists to paint outdoors at the new Desert Bloom Art Festival in Kayenta. I did some quick sketches of the desert arboretum flowers and cactuses, then did a quick watercolor study of pink cactus blossoms. A couple of artist friends hung around to watch and we had a mini-lesson in negative painting. My wife made the day when she showed up with some hot home-made tamales.
