The Northwoods Outdoor Painters meet every Thursday morning (during the "high" season of summer) in the Minocqua/Woodruff/Boulder Junction/Manitowish area of northern Wisconsin.
That would be June-August primarily.
Our fearless organizer, Florie, sets up a schedule (usually before the season is even over), for the next season and posts it on our own blog and then on the Manito Art League blog as well. It's open to everyone and is usually 8:30 to 12:30.
People bring easels or sketchbooks and spend time enjoying some art work out of doors. Then we go out to lunch! This week we painted at JJ's Acres which is a local nursery...lush and colorful at this time of year! It's located just north of Minocqua in Woodruff.
I am using my Stillman & Birn (Beta Series) journal for this sketch.
And a Lamy pen and watercolors. It's fairly small...5 x 7.
This is the way the two page spread looked after I got home and added the map and the writing. This is something I don't always do but it is nice for a memory to add a little personal note to it when I have the time.
We ate lunch at the Wild Boar restaurant in Woodruff.
