This was my first time painting with a group of plein air artists from Lincoln. We met at Lake Natoma, which is at the very southern tip of Folsom Lake. It was a boring scene to begin with, but once people started arriving it soon livened up and before we knew it we had beach goers, kayakers, paddle boarders, sailboats and all sorts to paint!
The weather was just about perfect, and we had a nice bit of shade to set up in.
Below are some sketches I did that day too. Not only did we have sailboats up by the dam, but we also had a group of model boat enthusiasts right next to us, who provided entertainment by racing their boats in front of us.
