Rocky Mountains with Jerry Markham

Instructor: Jerry Markham
Date: July 19-22, 2013 & July 22-25, 2013
Location: Okanagan Valley
Cost: $600 + tax

In this workshop we will follow in the footsteps of master painters, such as John Singer Sargent, Carl Rungius and J.E.H. MacDonald, through their travels of the Canadian Rockies, painting at Bow Lake, Lake O’Hara and Moraine Lake.

At Bow Lake we will paint in the same places as Carl Rungius, to study what he saw and why it is important to study the masters to better understand our own work. At Lake O’Hara we will stand at Sargent’s Point and paint one of the most beautiful, and most painted, places on earth. Painters from around the world have come to paint and study these wonders of mother nature. We will study the works of some of these artists and then learn to create our own interpretation of these majestic places.

You will receive a lot of helpful info and tips on landscape painting, plein air painting, and how to paint mountains, as well as on painting techniques such as creating compelling compositions, working with values, edges, color, and more.

Length: 3 days + evening presentation and meet & greet
