Jan 28 2022 - Jan 30 2022


8:00 am - 6:00 pm

There is magic in the freshly fallen snow and brilliant winter sunshine in the mountain town of Steamboat Springs. Capture this exquisite beauty of winter as you paint from reference material in the warm comfort of the art museum studio in this three-day workshop. With scenes dominated by a white blanket of snow, the icy landscape is a compelling subject for the watercolor artist. Winter’s frozen artistry is a great way to study values, color relationships, contrast, and composition. The Yampa and Elk River valleys abound with subject matter such as ranch scenes, aspen forests, and mountain vistas. Dennis Pendleton will demonstrate daily as he explains how to simplify the subject matter, work with a strong value range, and make color choices. The workshop will include individual painting time, personalized instruction, and friendly group critiques. Come and thaw out on a chilly winter day painting crisp snow settings in watercolor. Basic watercolor experience is needed. Students are responsible for their lodging and meals. Dottie at the Steamboat Art Museum can make recommendations on lodging
