Malden Park West Fall colours anyone?
THANKSGIVING MONDAY, October 13th 10:00 A.M. until ?
ALTERNATE OR ADDITIONAL (RAIN) DATE: THURSDAY, October 16TH 10:00 A.M. until ?
(P.S. if you want to do both days I’m up for that, just let me know, I most likely will be painting both days.)
This side of Malden Park has interesting wooded areas, rolling hills and walking trails. As you know we don’t have many hills in Essex County, this will give you a new vantage point to paint from.
Google Map to entrance off Matchette Rd. (Don’t use E.C. Row Ramp to Matchette maybe closed.)
Take Tecumseh Rd W to Matchette Road. The parking lot is across from Mic-Mac park. We will most likely be up in the hills where the dots are located on the map below. You will not see us from the parking lot.
There is no way to predict what the weather will be like, but here is a link to a weather site that gives hourly updates on the weather. Looking out the window works too. ;)
SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO BRING
(Tailor this list to suit your needs.)
For your personal comfort:
It’s getting cold dress warmer! layers always help.
You probably won’t need the hand warmers yet, but fingerless gloves might be a bonus.
Snack & Water
For the sake of art:
Plein Air easel
Plein air pochade box
Plein Air umbrella (or look for shade which may not be available.)
Paint and drawing supplies of your choice
Your drawing supplies can be as little as a pencil, pad and sharpener or as elaborate as a full french easel box of oils and canvases. If you are just starting out, we suggest starting small.
