Sketching @ Port Costa

Based on sketch location ideas at the last meetup, let's head up north to Port Costa and capture the charming old buildings and Carquinez Strait views.

You can get a preview of the scenery here:
* Google maps: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Port+Costa,+CA/@38.0445932,-122.1876955,2691m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x808571c6c84a9b6b:0x483b1fa8fe7cf082

* We'll start with a group warm-up activity, then spread out and sketch whatever.

* At 3:30pm we'll come back together for group gallery and feedback.

Be sure to bring water and a snack. (And probably a hat and sunscreen. A portable camp chair might be good, too.)

If you're interested in carpooling, post a message here and we'll coordinate rides if possible.

See ya there!

      No worries. We are at the saloon across from the hotel. Look for people sketching, or text[masked] when you arrive.

    I was out at Benecia last weekend (right down the road from Port costa) and I think we'll really have fun searching out the interesting views here along the straights.
