Our painting locations for June are all old favourites that we have enjoyed many times.

Just to add to the challenges of plein air painting, the days are cooler,  reminding us that it is winter, however, they are always enjoyable mornings for those who do come along.

If you haven’t been before, bring your sketching or painting gear in the medium of your choice and come along and join in. There are no starting or finishing times, come and go as you please. Morning tea is at 10am and lunch at 12Noon.   Suggestions for new locations are always welcomed.

A note for your diary……because of the winter weather and personal extended holidays, it has been decided to only have paint outs on the first Tuesday ONLY, in the months of July, August and September.

On the lake, near the Waterfall Cafe at Mt Penang Gardens, there is a nice lot of autumn trees and if we are lucky and weather permitting, they will reflect their colours into the water.
Other locations are old favourites but enjoyable locations.

If you haven’t been to our paint-out mornings before, bring your painting or sketching gear and come along and join in. There are no starting or finishing times, come and go as you please. Morning tea is at 10am and lunch 12Noon.

I thought we would enjoy the autumn colours at two new rural locations, both have safe off road parking. Please note that there are no toilet facilities. Please note the Matcham location is (between Macs Lane & McGarrity Ave).
The other locations are old favourites. It is a very long time since we have been to the Wyrrabalong Nation Park, ‘Bateau Bay. It is a nice natural bush setting with picnic areas that overlook down onto Bateau Bay Beach. Don’t forget suggestions for your favourite or new locations are always appreciated.
Members and non-members of the Society are welcome to come and enjoy our paint out mornings, so bring your painting or sketching gear and come along and join us.
There is no starting or finishing times, come and go as you please. Morning tea is at 10am and lunch at 12Noon.

Paint Out Locations – November

Paint Out Locations – November

November 1 Melbourne Cup Day – The Waterfront at the end of Restella St, Davistown Map 49 M15
November 8 The jetty between Sirius & Discovery Sts, St Hubert’s Island. Map 53 G1
November 15 The boat shed & jacaranda trees at the end of Jacaranda Av. Patonga Map 56 K11
November 22 Farm drive way, corner of Foots Rd & Palmdale Rd. Palmdale Map 26 B10
November 29 The Jacaranda trees. corner of Nartanda Av. & Tumbi Tumbi Rd. Wamberal Map 42 A8
December 6 The jacaranda trees opposite Pioneer Park, Albany St. Point Frederick. Map 45 F15

The St. Hubert’s Island location is new; very simple and affective; it would be suitable for our Urban Sketching or painting in your preferred medium. Please note there are no public toilet facilities on St. Hubert’s.
It is Jacaranda time so there are several locations to enjoy. especially the Jacarandas at Palmdale lining the driveway up to the house and shed. The owners of the farm have kindly given us permission to sit and paint inside their driveway as long as we don’t block the road. Please park outside and walk in. It is opposite the car park for the Crematorium; toilet facilities in the cafe or over the footbridge to the main Crematorium building
I found another new rural location to paint these beautiful trees which is on a long sweeping “S” bend known as Thelma Swadling’s Corner, on Tumbi Road. The two cottages opposite would also make good subjects. Plenty of parking, but no public toilet facilities nearby. The Jacarandas over the sandstone fence in the garden of the house opposite Pioneer Park is another good location, as is Patonga near the boat shed. It is hard to say just when the trees will be at their best as they don’t like wind and rain. So hopefully this unpredictable weather will be kind to us.
So we have two new locations this month. I am always on the lookout for new places to meet and paint together. Other suggestions are always welcomed. If you haven’t been to our mornings before, come along and join in. It is not a lesson, just a setting for us to meet and paint together. You can paint in your preferred medium or just sit and sketch. There are no starting or finishing times, come and go as you please. Morning tea is at 10am and lunch is at 12Noon.
