Jack London Sate Park


Jack London is internationally famous for his books Call of the Wild (1903), The Sea Wolf (1904). Today the London estate is a public park which includes 1400 acres of trails, pristine vistas, and historic buildings demonstrating early 20th century life. I sketched the Stallion barn with the London’s cottage in the background surrounded by vineyards.

Ready, Set, Sketch: Jack London State Park

Screen Shot 2014-05-04 at 9.33.02 PMThe next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing is Saturday May 10, 2014. 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Jack London State Park near Glen Ellen, CA.

There is a $10 fee per vehicle so it’s best to buddy up. Park in the UPPER LOT, if possible, and we’ll all meet at the entrance. I’ve never visited this park before but I know there are plenty of great drawing opportunities. All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with (it’s also nice to have a chair to sit on).

Each month we meet at a different location around Sonoma County the second Saturday of each month. Last month in the town of Sonoma, eight sketchers took part, each with various levels of sketching abilities, and we all had a great time. So what are you waiting for? Come on out and join us!
