Plein Air Painting: Star Valley, Wyoming (DESTINATION)
This workshop will take place in the beautiful autumn environs of Star Valley, Wyoming, on the Anderson Creek Ranch and its neighboring vicinity. Anderson Creek Ranch is located only an hour and a half south of Grand Teton National Park. The area has a lot of diverse subject matter, with barns, mountains, cottonwood trees and farm fields.

- 1– Light, and how it behaves on natural objects such as trees, mountains, barns and
- 2– Design, which depends on patterns of light, mid-tone and dark shapes to be effective.
