Red Fish Lake Painting Workshop

Stanley area, Idaho

August 26th – 28th


Paint the Beauty of Red Fish Lake

Come with me to Red Fish Lake, Idaho one of the most beautiful Alpine Lakes in the Northwest. The beauty of the area has been a draw to artists and writers nearly a century. Captivated by the towering Sawtooth mountains, lazy streams and high mountain lakes this is a wonderful place to paint.

This 3 day workshop we will explore the fundamentals of Plein Air painting. Lectures and demonstrations will all take place outside and in the landscape. That is the best venue to discuss painting. Surrounded by what we will be painting. Using a limited palette and simplification of the landscape in both color and shape to create a convincing painting of the scene. Learn to see in shape and value instead of line and detail. Learn to use value and color to depict three dimensional space or depth. We will explore using larger brushes and economy of brushstrokes to work more quickly and accurately.
