August 28 HIKE & PAINT Huckleberry Rock Trail

HIKE & PAINT 9:00AM -1:00PM with Guest Artist

This session is a 4 hour adventure as we explore the Huckleberry Trail together. This loop trail is 2.5km in and out. Artists who make the trek to the Lookout will have the reward of a great vista overlooking Lake Muskoka with the forest leaves on trees in full colour. More to come later about guest artist.

Please consider if you are fit enough to traverse rocky ground with a moderate incline and determine your own comfort level. The Bala Plein Air Group assumes that all individuals who participate in this group walk and talk are fit to participate and take on personally the responsibility for the risks involved. More information about Huckleberry Rock Lookout Trail can be found here. There are benches and forest pathways for artists at the entrance of the trail for painting on your own if you do not feel comfortable with the walk and climb.

Plein air artists who pack light will not mind the 2.5km loop trail. We will leave time for painting/sketching at the lookout after listening to guest artist lecture and learn how plein air artists approach colour, and take inspiration from Canada’s magnificent views and scenic landscapes.

RAIN? We will proceed if there is a light possibility 30-40% chance of rain on this day, but if washed out or stormy weather we will reschedule to THURSDAY August 29. Those signed up with the BPAG Group will be kept in the loop by E-Mail if plans need to be changed.

SUNNY? Bring a sunshade like an umbrella. Bright sun can overexpose colour and hard to see judge hues and values.
