Late last June I joined the both North Bay Plein Air Painters and the Benicia "Da Group" Plein Air Painters at China Camp State Park. I tried to capture the eucalyptus trees in a watercolor but it was beyond my capabilities in the heat of the day. I switched to pastels and was able to complete a couple of sketches from where we sat.

It was VERY hot that day and we were glad for the BBQ Picnic and Critique later in the afternoon. Definitely have to go back to this location!
