Field Sketching at Point Lobos

An afternoon field sketching session at Point Lobos. Point Lobos is a slice of heaven with limitless opportunites to draw and paint. Let's take the trail towards Moss Cove and Granite Point, with views overlooking Point Lobos, Whaler's Cove, Monastery and Carmel Beach.

Weather permitting. Park and meet on dirt shoulder before the park entrance. Prepare for about a mile hike, with layered clothing for what might be windy and cold. I recommend a portable field sketching stool and snacks along with your art supplies.

Look forward to seeing you there!

 

"The Moss Cove trail crosses over uplifted marine terraces, remnants of ancient beaches from an earlier geologic age."

"At the high point of the trail there is a windswept rocky outcrop amid a garden of low-growing wildflowers. "

    Sorry I couldn't make it after all. Forgot about a meeting I had to attend in Salinas. I bet it was gorgeous out there...

    Man, if I didn't have this stupid cold I'd have been there in a heart beat! Sigh, but I'm glad you had a good time.

    Beautiful day, not too much of a breeze. Everything was rich in color...great scenery for captures, whether photographically or sketching...
    Sorry that so few showed -- Jon & I were the only ones to brave the day -- so glad I went! Thank you, Jon!

    Jon, if that stool is still up for grabs, I'll take it this time for sure. I'll meet at the designated parking area to retrieve it, then I am going to drive into the park & hope I can find parking. (Or, if I'm feeling up to it, I'll walk with you guys)...

    Looks like it should be a pretty nice day out there, but dress in warm layers as it could get cold.
    Looking forward to it!
