Sun Valley Painting Workshop

Sept 13th – 15th

Painting in the Land of Hemingway

Paint the Alpine Beauty in Sun Valley

Come with me to Sun Valley Idaho one of the most beautiful Alpine escapes in the Northwest. The beauty of the area has been a draw for artists and writers nearly a century. From the towering mountains, lazy streams and tall pine trees 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.
