For our Urban sketching this month, I have put two locations on the list, the first is along the waterfront between the Gosford Swimming Pool and Iguana Joes Restaurant. We can park in the car park and walk along. The other is at the Holy Cross Church, Humphrey’s Rd. South Kincumber. Please note that there are no public toilets here. Urban Sketching is a new idea for us to try, and interesting web sites for ideas are those by Liz Steel and Robyn Bauer.
A new location on the list is the Onthonna Fire Trail. It is on the right after you go up the hill from Umina and just before the turn to Pearl Beach, however, road side parking is limited. There is a gate at the start of the fire trail and nice trees. It is refreshing to get out and enjoy the fresh air and surroundings of natural locations. Please note that there are no public toilets here, nearest being down on the Pearl Beach waterfront.
The other locations are popular old favourites, and if you have suggestions for other locations these are always welcomed.
If you haven’t been to our paint out mornings before come along and join in, bring your preferred painting/sketching gear, your hat and chair. There is no starting or finishing times, come and go as you please. Morning tea is at 10am and lunch 12Noon.
