Paint Out November 12, 2022
Oak Park is one of the many beautiful Santa Barbara city parks with old flowing oak and sycamore trees, and mission creek, currently dry, meandering through. There are fantastic views with beautiful light streaming through the trees and cottages along the side.
The November paint out will be a little different. There will be the usual opportunity to just enjoy painting in the park. Some of us might want to bring a painting in progress, especially with the December Scape Show in mind, to attend to finishing touches. A spontaneous co-critiquing experience with others might occur with some painters as an optional sharing of impressions.
So, some of us will be at the Paint Out simply to paint, either on a work in progress or a new painting, others may want an impression from another. Also, if anyone is new to online jurying or has other questions this might be a good time to ask someone else at the Paint Out about any lingering questions.
Location: Oak Park, 638 Junipero St, S.B. 93105

Notice: There will be no Paint Out in December
THE JOY OF SCAPE PAINT OUTS
By Jerry Martin, Paintouts Co-Chair
One of the great perks of being in SCAPE is having monthly collegial paint outs with like-minded nice people. If you haven't been to one you will be hooked once you do! It is always fun to paint in new and interesting locations of urban-scapes, landscapes and seascapes. We meet at a location of scenic beauty often chosen in conjunction with an upcoming show. Whether you are experienced with plein air painting, interested in taking photographs or perhaps drawing for use in the studio later, or just want to share being in natural settings with others, it is worth checking out.
We have enjoyed gathering at Naples with ocean bluffs, agricultural land and mountains; a private organic farm in the Santa Ynez Valley near Buellton; Lake Carneros; an historic adobe and farm on the Gaviota coast, Arroyo Hondo Preserve; and a hilltop avocado ranch in the foothills. We like to explore new venues, classic locations, and beautiful sights.
There are certain paint outs that require a reservation as they are being held on private land or lands managed by one of our beneficiaries such as EDC: Coal Oil Point, Sedgwick, Salt Marsh.
As a member if you have access or live in a spot that offers an enticing view and would accommodate around a dozen painters to set up, please contact Filiberto Lomeli or Jerry Martin. We would all much appreciate new ideas and new locations. Join Us!
