Come along on a Wintertime Painting & Sketching Hike in and near Locke, Ca. This will be joined by a few artists from two other meetup groups, the Sacramento Plein Air Painters and the Sacramento Sketchers.
Quick color sketching along the way.
A hidden pond reveals itself only in winter when the trees are bare.
Climbing trees is optional.
Sleeping in trees, however, will be forbidden.
(Our lovely and agile model, above, is my 18 year old daughter, Mary Sand.)
Hike starts at 10 a.m. Meet in Locke in front of Al the Wops on Main Street. Don't be late!
This is a mostly level 1.5 mile hike. There is one 20' long somewhat steep narrow path up a levee hill and some optional off-path prickly narrow paths. This is a guided hike with an optional quickie watercolor demo-lesson along the way.
Watercolor kits, blank postcards, pencils and brushes will be provided. Approximately 60 minute hike (including 3 ten minute stops to make quick, small color sketches along the way) winds up back on Main Street, Locke for informal optional, friendly group art critique.
Your well-behaved, very obedient dog on a leash okay to bring along. Well-contended children welcome as well.
(Any small donation you might wish to contribute for art supplies will be much appreciated.)
Rain or high winds will postpone this event to a future date to be determined. Meanwhile, think sunshine!
