You will be immersed into the travel journaling lifestyle to record your time here in the Gem of the Oregon Coast: Yachats by sketching in watercolor and ink. We have a variety of unique watercolor sketchbooks that you will select & paint from (yours to keep). I'll provide the watercolor supplies: travel brushes, pencils, pens, and lots of vibrant colors designed to capture the pop and excitement of the day. No matter your artist skill level, you'll shake off the painting jitters with a quick intro-sketch at our meetup point. I will drive you through a quick history tour leading to our first stop. From here I can begin to answer questions you may have and offer recommendations from composition, to colors, and more. We will then move on to capture a planned experience that will showcase nature, panoramic views, a buzz of people, unique and/or historic structures, which may include any or all of these components depending on perspective. Bring your binoculars because wildlife abounds here...surely there will be something to discuss. Sketching watercolor works up a thirst, so I'll fuel the journey with a beverage (and light snack if required). Wrap up the day with a memory that has many more layers than a photo and a skill you can continue to develop. (*** I'm flexible with time, so just reach out if you'd like to start an hour EARLIER or LATER to maximize your time. ***)
I'm the founder of Wild Plein, travel-focused watercolor art supplies. (wildplein.com) I'm an experienced painter and traveler who seeks out nature, hiking trails, interesting architecture & subject matter, and sketching groups to perfect my painting skill and share my unique style. I've worked hand-in-hand with 1,600yo Chinese brush-making communities to bring the most adventurous travel brushes to the public. I work with the world's foremost paper mills to create exotic and interesting watercolor journals that you will be actively using. You will easily experience nature in a truly memorable way. You can check out more of the experience on our Instagram: @sketchyachats and up the coast @sketchnewport. Or our Summer program Instagram @sketchbigbear
We will start at Bread & Roses Bakery in Yachats. Our intro-sketch is designed to get your creative juices flowing and start to look at subjects differently. We will then pick an iconic landscape view around the bay filled with colorful homes tucked into the forested hills and ever changing water scenes. Or take a quick trail hike along an epic scene of the coast with crashing waves to capture a truly memorable experience beyond just a photograph
最多可供4位年滿10歲的旅人參加。 Guests choosing a hiking paint journey may be hiking 30min - 1 hour. Not all experiences require strenuous hikes to discover interesting subjects. We will cater the experience to your abilities, desires, and interests.
*** Experience runs from Nov 20th - March 31st. We can discuss the best options for you to paint based on your interests and desired subjects. We can paint several locations time permitting. We may choose to hike to certain locations weather and ability permitting. Again all materials are provided.
