Between Colchester Village & Oxley
A special thanks to Ann Ducharme for the invite to her lovely property. (Photo by Ann) This beautiful wooded landscaped ravine will remind you of a fairy land.
We also wish to thank Ann for graciously opening her home to us. You will be able to warm up, and use her washroom. For those who are unable to take the cold you may paint in her dining room.
(Note: give yourself time this is a 35 to 45 min drive from Windsor.)

SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO BRING
(Tailor this list to suit your needs.)
For your personal comfort:
It’s cold dress warm! We don’t want you getting frostbite.
Warm wind proof coat
Snow pants if you have them
Sunglasses protect your eyes from the glare of snow.
Hand and toe warmers. Canadian Tire carries these and they are well worth the price.
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.
I’m open to suggestions for other cold or rain friendly locations where there is painting potential. Keep in mind that we can not schedule private property.
We are looking forward to seeing you MONDAY!
