What you'll do

You will be immersed into the travel journaling lifestyle to record your time here at the Oregon Coast. We have a variety of unique watercolor sketchbooks that you will select & paint from. 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 of a unique subject matter in Newport at our meeting point. (Or you may just jump right into a painting.) 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. I will also provide you binoculars because there is always unique wildlife nearby. Sketching works up an appetite and thirst, so I'll fuel the journey with a tasty snack and beverage. Wrap up the day with a memory that has many more layers than a photo. (*** I'm fairly flexible with time, so just reach out if you'd like to start an hour EARLIER or LATER to maximize your trip.***)
