Bring your mask as you will have curious onlookers in this park.

The park is large so you may have to go for a stroll to find each other.
Reaume Park also known as Coventry Gardens is at the foot of Pillette Road on the riverfront. The fountain is beautiful, and starts it’s glorious display at 10:00. The park is quite large with many beautiful gardens and pathways to paint. As always please keep an eye on the weather. We start at 9:00 am.

MONDAY – Plein Air Paint out Cedar Island, Kingsville, Ontario

Monday, September, 13th 9:00 a.m. – Noon.

Location:

Cedar Island & Beach at Kingsville
900 Cedar Island Drive
Kingsville, Ontario

Map to location: https://goo.gl/maps/EKoqwEh2XPkGF6po6

Cedar Island is a great location. There is a beach on one side and two marinas are on the other side. Just a reminder even though we are outside please bring a mask when in public, and be aware of those who would be curious about what you are doing.
Warning! This time of year the yellow jackets are very aggressive. Do make sure your body is fully covered. Avoid bright colours and perfume. Don’t swat them! If you are allergic I do not suggest you go out at this time. They seem to be very busy near water especially. Bug spray does NOT work.

(Slight chance of rain early in the morning.)

If the weather does not cooperate then bring your work inside. Try painting a self-portrait from a mirror. If that is too much of a challenge, then do it from a photograph. Set up a still life, or flower arrangement. Try to paint or sketch from life, but it’s ok to use a photograph. or even your imagination! The most important thing is to remain creative.

Remember it can be a full-fledged painting or a pencil sketch.
Enjoy!
