Cyclocross Crusade #4 – PIR Heron Lakes

October 20, 2019 at 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

Race #4 takes us to Heron Lakes at Portland International Raceway in Portland!

Team Competition
Cyclocross Watercolor

Artists have long painted outdoors, but how many artists have painted en plein air at a cyclocross race? Rick Potestio, our resident artist and founder of the Cyclocross Crusade, will have his studio set up on-site. Come paint alongside a great, or set up your own studio space at your team tent. Although the traditional and well-established method of painting en plein air incorporates the use of oil paint, watercolor is the medium of choice at Heron Lakes. There is no water on-site (unless it rains) so please plan your art supplies accordingly! Bring your entries to the Cyclocross Crusade tent in the expo by 2:00 for judging. Be sure you include a label with your team name for easy identification. Winner will be announced at 4:15 at the Crusade tent.
