June 29th Witty's Lagoon

Hi Alfrescoes, the next paint out location will be June 29th at Witty's Lagoon. There are two entrances one has a long staircase and the other doesn't but it's a long walk to the beach.   Let's gather where most of the painters are and allow for two gathering places if it's practical.

Also, be very careful not to park illegally. I've read that they will tow cars parked illegally near Witty's. Here's a link with information about Witty's Lagoon Park with directions how to get there and even which buses to take for those using public transportation. Witty's Lagoon Park

This location is on that map of Emily Carr's favourite painting locations.

June 8 2012 Durrance Lake

Hi Everyone, Our next location will be at Durrance Lake. Here's a description of it from Alfrescoe Elfreda. Who researched it for us (Thanks Elfreda): And here's a google map with Durrance lake Map.

Melanie lost a 001 W&N watercolor brush at Woodwynn Farms. Please return it to her if you found it. 

Durrance Lake: un unmanicured Park with parking lot and bathrooms. A real typical west coast scenerio. Only one building -the bathroom. Lots of foliage, water, stumps, moss, rocks and cars in parking lot in hearily forested area. It is a lovely 25-30 minute walk around the lake on a rustic path. About 20-25 minutes out of Victoria (not as long as Woodwyn Farms)
