“Although not always at the 404 Ranch, I have been attending Lynn McLain’s Water Color Workshops since 2005.  The week is full of fellowship with friends, new acquaintances, talented artists willing to share their unique talents and golden sunsets when at the 404 Ranch Studio in Stephenville.
Lynn is an expert instructor in watercolor media.  The Workshops are always well organized and informative.  He takes us on a step-by-step learning journey as he teaches about painting preparation.  He provides wonderful information about color application, color mixing on the palette, value adjustment, layering, and a variety of other techniques, which result in a rich vibrant painting.
Lynn McLain’s watercolor workshops are always a pleasure to attend but when at the Ranch, its even more fulfilling because of the onsite experience.”
Jan Sims

“Three delicious meals are enjoyed daily and end of the day sunsets are superb.  I learned and enjoyed the ranch experience.  Don’t miss it !!! “
Jean Lewis

“This is more like a retreat; painting, fellowship, eating and having a great time with Lynn, a wonderful artist.”
Jackie Railsback 

“404 Ranch”

The ranch house was just recently remodeled inside and out and a 30’x30′ attached studio added which is where the workshop will be conducted.

This is a working ranch but, as you can see from the pictures below, this is not your run-of-the-mill ranch house.


“My teaching objectives include sharing my artistic gift, imparting a better understanding of drawing, design, seeing subject matter, use and confidence of the watercolor medium, and how to have fun painting with watercolor.” 
Lynn McLain

We hope to see you there!
Lynn McLain & Jackie Railsback
