Haycock referred to paintings done within driving
distance of his Ottawa home as "local" sketches.
This included eastern Ontario and western Quebec.
In latter years he stayed at the Eganville area home
of his daughter, painter and weaver Kathy M. Haycock
for regular spring and fall sketching trips.
In addition, a much loved spring painting location
was the "North Shore" (Charlevoix region)
of the St. Lawrence in March or early April, where
Haycock first painted with A.Y. Jackson in 1944. In
fact, the spring thaw with softly mounded snow, warm
highlights and blue shadows was Haycock's favourite
season to paint.
