When trekking hobbies are useful for evenings, quiet days and so on. There are the obvious hobbies such as photography and blogging. However, there are also other hobbies such as watercolor painting and rock painting.
Rock painting seems to be very popular. We've encountered rock painters from Florida to Arizona and everywhere in between. After painting many of the artists hide the rock somewhere outdoors where it can be found. Some put a website or social media group on the flip side, if one is inclined to announce their find.
We've encountered "official" Rock painting groups at some RV resorts. The one we are currently staying at has such a group. Materials are provided for free!
Materials (paint and brushes) are available at hobby stores such as Hobby Lobby, Michaels and of course on Amazon. Small, smooth rocks can be found in streams or at landscaping (stone) supply companies.
There are lots of videos on You Tube which can get on started, and of course there are dedicated websites.
I decided to dabble a bit so here is what I've done so far. I'm using acrylic paint over gesso. There are many different styles and sizes of rocks. I prefer smaller, although that does make painting more difficult.
