"Once you learn the mechanics of painting the landscape, it's time to learn how to add the magic…the poetry. We'll examine the difference between paintings that merely contain elements of the landscape, and those that convey a distinct visual message… and how to gain the skills necessary to accomplish this.
We'll cover some methods that will help you develop a strong composition and edit unnecessary details that detract from the emotion you want to convey. We'll also address how to make every stroke count, considering the particulars of how you apply pigment to surface and how the quality of the application will contribute to your painting's message.
Each day of the workshop will begin with a demonstration followed by students working on a specific painting exercise for the remainder of the day. Students will receive plenty of individual help from the instructor at the easel during their painting time.
This workshop is open to all levels, although artists with at least some basic painting experience will benefit most.About Barbara Jaenicke

Bev is inspired by light and color when painting. Still life and people are often her favorite subjects, although she also enjoys painting animals. Her distinctive style captures the emotion of her subjects in a painterly realistic way.
While Bev studied at Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University), she is basically self taught. Bev has studied in workshops offered by Doug Dawson, Terry Ludwig, Xiang Zhang and Daniel Greene. She paints in both pastel and oils using a style and technique of layering on of rich vibrant color.
Bev has been juried into numerous competitions, receiving many awards including "Best of Show" and "People's Choice." Her paintings can be found in both private and corporate collections throughout the country. Bev has been featured and her works published in the Pastel Artist International, the Artist Magazine, the International Artist Magazine and the Pastel Journal. Two of her paintings have been in the top 100 in the Pastel Journal. Her book, Painting Children secrets to capturing childhood moments, is available through North Light Books/Fw publications. Bev is one of 40 artists featured in the North Light book, Sketchbook Confidential.
