We painted at Tekarra, then Carolyn painted Tekarra Lodge environs after beating a hasty retreat home when the snow came down in blobs. This is one of the cabins, similar to the one Judy and Carolyn stayed in on the painting retreat with Watercolour in Jasper.
There is an initial pour with Moonglow and some of the sparkly mineral paints from Daniel Smith. That created the soft, moody atmosphere over the whole painting. The rest was sort of a palette clean up of the paints used on the retreat.
Our art retreat with Watercolour in Jasper was a wonderful watercolour experience, and one that brought some great results. Here are some of Judy’s en plein air paintings from the locations we visited:
Our Jasper Watercolour Retreat with Watercolour in Jasper was a real treat! We very much enjoyed the mountains, the painting and the people! It will be an experience to remember forever, and the best souvenirs are those we made ourselves. Here are some of Judy’s en plein air paintings from Horseshoe Lake:
Our retreat with Watercolour in Jasper was great fun and hard work. We painted and thought about painting and talked about painting for more than average work day hours every day. Analyzing landscape shapes and colour, organizing important and unimportant features and figuring out an approach to reproducing what we saw was intense. Each day brought new challenges, but each day we were armed with the experience of the day before. It was a rewarding experience, and one that brought decent results!

Hmm, this was a good day not to be painting outside! Our time with Watercolour in Jasper and Tekarra Lodge was over just in time for us to enjoy the lovely mountain snowfall and head north again.
