18 day Artist trip to The Catskills , The Adirondacks , NYC and Gettysburg

I just returned home from a wonderful trip to The Catskills , The Adirondacks , NYC and Gettysburg with my partner Erik Koeppel. The first stop was NYC , where I taught a plein air workshop in Central Park ,  through The Grand Central Atelier.  Here is a photo of the class at Gapstow Bridge , which is such a beautiful spot. The class was actually full with 12 students! 13332976_10153564815477124_8352970577764619813_n

After Gettysburg , we then journeyed to one of our favorite places in the world , The Clove in The Catskill mountains. These mountains were home to one of the best movements in landscape painting , The Hudson River School. Their is nothing like visiting the same spots that Thomas Cole , Sanford Gifford , and Asher B Durand had spent time painting.

This time we were fortunate to paint at Artist’s Seat in Onteora Park, Inspiration Point ,  Twilght Park and Kaaterskill Falls. Below is a photo of  all of my paintings made on the trip, all works in progress of course.

Next we went to The Adirondacks! To attend Eric Rhoad’s The Publishers Invitational. Here are some photos from there. 13428007_1131444613580946_1414920297036196599_n

Here is the course title and description:

 

Traditional landscape painting using a layered approach.

Regardless of your level of experience, the goal of this workshop will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting. In this workshop, we will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great Landscape Painters of the past.  Students will discover a deeper understanding of how these old masters approached plein-air painting, how they composed the complexity of nature before them, and how they used a layered approach to greater capture qualities of space, and form in the landscape.

 

Dates: July 21st  to 24th

Tuition: 500
