Lake Tahoe Peninsula

Lake Tahoe Peninsula by Jason Campbell I recently went on a retreat to Lake Tahoe and took some photos. This is a painting based on one of the photos.
While painting it I looked at other paintings of landscapes for inspiration in my art books and at the Crocker Art Museum. It’s interesting that everyone paints the sky and water a little differently. I guess you could classify them as “more realistic” and “more expressionistic” but maybe it is just that everyone sees them a little different. You never know exactly what the world looks like through someone else’s eyes… because you aren’t them.
