Event description

Description

Can’t paint outdoors? Want to develop a spontaneous interpretation of a landscape using a photograph? Jeanne will demonstrate how to turn a photo into a painting that reflects the energy and emotions of being on location. Put bravado in your paintings using your own photographs.

Jeanne Mackenzie’s style of painting is a blend of impressionism and realism. Her paintings are done in oil with rich warm tones and a painterly application. These reflect the bold light and striking contrasts of her favorite still lifes and western landscapes.

Jeanne is a founding member of the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters. Graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Teaching Credentials from San Diego State University she eventually fell in love with and devoted herself to oil. She has studied with Clyde Aspevig, Michael Lynch, Matt Smith and Calvin Liang.

Her artwork has earned Merit Awards and she has shown at juried shows throughout the US including the Oil Painters of America Show, CM Russell Invitational Show and Arts for the Parks-Top 100 (award of excellence). Jeanne has been featured in the Southwest Art Magazine’s Best of the West and My World, American Artist’s Workshop Magazine, Plein Air Magazine and International Artist Magazine-Master Artists plus many other shows too numerous to mention.
