Barbara Jaenicke

Landscape & Light



Intermediate and Advanced Level


Friday, Saturday & Sunday

 May 3, 4 & 5, 2024

9:00 am - 4:00 pm



Spend three days in an intensive study on how to train your eyes to discern light in the landscape. Although this is a studio workshop, Barbara will discuss what to observe when painting outdoors from life (or simply gathering reference photos), and how to bring that knowledge into the studio. She’ll focus on how to “read” a reference photo and capture the genuine effects of various lighting situations in your studio landscape paintings, rather than duplicate a compromised photographic image. The workshop will cover a few different types of landscapes with one day focused on snow. On the first day, students will all work from instructor-provided photo references for a specific exercise. For the remaining days, students may choose to work from their own photos or instructor-provided photos. Each day will begin with a demonstration, followed by student painting time in the afternoon during which students will receive plenty of individual guidance at their easel. Students may work in
 oil or pastel, or both. Barbara will give equal demonstration time to both. This workshop is open to intermediate to advanced level.






An artist since her teen years, Barbara started her art career as an advertising art director in 1986 and later worked in corporate marketing. She happily turned her focus to fine art in 2002, and began teaching in 2004. She was featured in the December 2011 issue of the Pastel Journal and is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, the American Impressionist Society, and Oil Painters of America.


Born and raised in New Jersey, Barbara also lived in Atlanta, Georgia for many years until she yearned for snow and mountains for her landscape subject matter, which prompted her family’s move to Bend, Oregon in 2015.
