    "I just wanted to share that my father-in-law absolutely LOVES your painting. He loves the frame and said that he's never owned a real oil painting. 😊 But most importantly, he loves the subject matter and he and my husband spent a lot of time reminiscing this morning about hikes they took there years ago. This part of the Hudson is, by far, their favorite! Thank you SO much for making this Christmas gift PERFECT."

    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

Windy Little Cove

This is one of those kinds of fall scenes I love to paint — with color, transparency, and reflections. It’s the type of subject that seems to draw me no matter where I am, but this time I happened to be at North South Lake. The early morning light showcased the transparency in the water in the foreground, but quickly gave way to sky reflections and windy turbulence. I went back a few times to finish the painting. It’s one of my favorites of the year!

Autumn at Little Stony Point

The late afternoon light along the Hudson River is so engrossing. I was drawn to the glow of these leaves against the dark background of Crow’s Nest Mountain. The lower the sun got over the western sky, the darker the hillside became. The sun lit up the translucent leaves from behind. I was so captivated by the changes in contrast that I forgot to watch out for the rising tide! I’d positioned my chair close to the water line, and before I knew it, the chair legs were in the water and waves were washing over my sandals! I ended up having to move my chair three times before I finished the painting.

Breakneck Ridge and Bannerman Island from Little Stony Point

This was painted overlooking the Hudson River from the clifftops of Little Stony Point in Cold Spring, NY. It was cold and windy that day. I bundled up and held onto my painting box for dear life. The last time I painted up here, my easel blew over and broke. Painting from up here can be an expensive undertaking!

Touches of Autumn at Kaaterskill Falls

This was possibly my last fall hike up to the base of Kaaterskill Falls, one of the Hudson River School painters’ locations that I love the most. It was a cold day, and I was the last of my painting group to leave the spot. One of the park rangers was up there with me, with occasional hikers coming along to view the magnificent waterfall. I was glad to see they finally had a ranger there to try and dissuade hikers from venturing up the sides of the falls, where two have already died this year.

I’ve done so many paintings up here, but I think this was the first time I did a 2:1 ratio at this spot. I really like the way it works with these proportions. I think this layout gives a truer impression of how tall the falls are.

Autumn in the Mountains

This time of year, one of my favorite painting adventures involves taking the ski lift up Hunter Mountain with all of my painting equipment, and painting the magnificently colored Catskills from the top. The ski trails create openings in the tree line, revealing mountains and valleys beyond, with paths winding down the mountain. What struck me for this particular painting was the way the brilliant orange-yellow foliage on the near hillside lit up against the dark, backlit mountain beyond.

Autumn at the Beach

I arrived early in the morning at the North South Lake beach to paint with some friends and it was cold and windy. Fall was well underway already. I decided to search for a place from which I could paint in the comfort of my car until the temps warmed up a bit. I found this superb location near the beach, and started the painting in the car, with my little dog BB curled up in the passenger seat. Love the colors! I think I need to also do a larger version of this one.

North South Lake is another of the sites along the Hudson River School Art Trail, where Thomas Cole and his fellow painters spent much of their time painting and sketching on location. I think you can see why!

Fall Beginnings at Sunset Rock

This was painted at the Hudson River School site known as Sunset Rock. It is a site on the “Hudson River School Art Trail” and one of my favorite hiking destinations. Every visit here is different. The vista changes with the seasons, clouds, winds and temperatures. I never get tired of painting at this magical location, and neither did the Hudson River School painters!

Trees and Rocks Along the Hudson

This is a morning scene from the beach at Little Stony Point, in Cold Spring NY, where the Hudson River wraps around the peninsula, creating magnificent views to Breakneck Ridge (shown here) and Storm King. I’ve been spending some exquisite, warm fall days here, painting away to my heart’s content.

Since this is such a long horizontal format, it’s hard to see it in this small space on my blog. I love painting these panoramic vistas. They look magnificent on walls, though not so great on computer screens due to the way they format on websites. Below is an image you can click on to get a larger view of the painting:

I have at least three more paintings to post from Little Stony Point, all finished within the past few weeks, but it will be several days before they are all photographed and posted. I apologize for the delay to those folks I met on the beach who are eager to see them! I’ll try to get them up here on the site within the next week.

Driftwood on the Beach

This driftwood tree trunk has been lying on the beach for ages at Little Stony Point, along the shores of the Hudson River in Cold Spring. I was looking for a challenge one afternoon, and took this on to explore the values, subtle color shifts, and twists and turns of the form. The longer I worked on it, the more I enjoyed the puzzle, as the pieces wove together to create what I saw before me. As the sun traveled westward, the driftwood got darker, and the water brighter. It was one of those stellar fall days that we never have enough of!

Here’s a photo of the scene with my painting, as I was painting it. You can click on it to get a larger image.

I’ve been painting at Little Stony Point quite a bit lately. I have four or five more paintings to post from this spot. The other ones feature the Hudson River, northern beach at Little Stony Point, and surrounding mountains — Storm King and Breakneck Ridge in particular. I still need to photograph those paintings, but I’ll be posting them in the coming days as I get a chance to adjust the images. Stay tuned!

Hudson River Sunset from Dennings Point

Posted by Jamie on October 1st, 2014

I love the Hudson River views from Dennings Point in Beacon. There are great downriver views of Storm King Mountain and Bannerman Island, usually with lots of atmosphere. I’ve only been to this spot a couple of times, but I enjoy using the photos I’ve taken there to create drama and atmospheric conditions that I’ve witnessed elsewhere on the Hudson River. It’s an interesting challenge to create something new. I’m working on some ideas for a larger painting, and this is one of them.
