32nd NBPA Paintout

This area has great views of the wetlands, Mt. Tam, and the surrounding hills. It's primarily a walking trail but there are plenty of areas along Ramal Road to set up and paint. There are vineyards to the opposite, and an interesting little pond as you drive down the road to Hudeman Slough.

Here is a panorama of the area at sunset:

Here are a few more panorama shots of the area during the day:

    After the rain cleared up, there was some incredible cloud-break effects. I took a lot of photos. We were able to paint underneath an old abandoned structure where I painted a study of a tractor. Would've been better with nicer weather.

    There were 2 covered areas to paint from. The abandoned structure where Glen painted was large enough to fit over a dozen painters and keep dry. The other covered structure was not much further and had a few picnic tables that overlooked the wetlands and vineyards. The rain did clear up later that afternoon! Photos coming soon :)

    I think I was the first one there. I waited for about an hour and then met Glen. it was really raining and cold, so I went off to take photos of the beautiful hills. So although I was there, I didn't paint. I wonder if anybody else showed up.

    It was only in the 40's here, so decided between the wind and temperature not to go. Hopefully the weather will be better next time.

    I was there between 11-11:30, no rain but couldn't find anyone. I headed back down the road towards the vineyards. Amazing colors! Hope to meet you at the next one.

    Rain may be dying down a bit. Might be there a bit later and stay later, once it's stopped.

    There is some protection from the rain at for those who brave it. A few people can fit underneath the structure with the picnic tables. Bring your easel umbrella in case. All forecasts I have checked are saying AM showers but clears up by afternoon.
