Let’s try it again, since last week was rained out. Meet us for plein air painting on Wednesday 30th March 2022, 10am, at Wharf Road in Riwaka. The tide will be going out (high tide around 9:40am, low tide around 4pm) and we will be able to paint water and boats with the Richmond hills in the background. After the painting session we can meet at Ginger Dynamite for a coffee. I can’t confirm that it’s open so we will just have to wait and see. Let’s hope the weather is ok, too.
Directions: To get to the above area you go through Motueka and over the Motueka Bridge.
After the bridge you take the first right which is Lodder Lane. Kidder Lane leads directly onto Wharf Road.
The inlet to which you refer is narrow and has a road on each side so access is good.
Wharf Road however is probably a good focal point to meet. It is about 500m long with a car park at the end.
Please bring your painting supplies, a chair, bug spray, sun screen, morning tea/lunch, and good weather.
If you have any suggestions on where to go for plein air, please let me know and I will include it in the list.
Plein air is scheduled for every Wednesday morning, except the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Please contact me if you like regular updates by email.
