    the-impressionists.jpg


    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!

Art to Go from the Hudson River Valley

Posted by Jamie on February 1st, 2017

170131 Varnished Paintings 435

Email me at JamieWG@aol.com if interested in this painting.

The other day, I varnished ten of my new Hudson River and Hudson Valley paintings. They range from scenes overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades from New York City, to Peach Lake in Brewster, and Burger Hill in Rhinebeck, up to the ledges of Sunset Rock overlooking North South Lake (beloved Hudson River School site), and the Catskill Mountains. Some of these were started on location and finished up in the studio, while others were painted from my photos and other plein air paintings. They represent much of the terrain I’ve traversed over the past six months or so, in search of the best of what the Hudson Valley has to offer my muse.

The varnishing process takes time to set up, so I like to do large batches at a time. Usually that means about 17-20 paintings. Lately I’ve worked on some larger pieces, which has lowered my production in terms of quantity. Working on those big paintings has meant that the little ones tend to hang out in the studio longer, before they get photographed, varnished, and up on my website. As the weeks go by, they get more touchups and adjustments as I see them. I think this has led to an overall increase in quality. As I look at this set of paintings now, I’m really happy with what I’ve achieved in this batch. Here’s a photo that you can click on, and you can then zoom in on specific paintings.

The large, framed painting of the Hudson River and Palisades is already spoken for, and out the door. (I do miss that one already! But there is a smaller version of it available among the others, and I can always do another large one for you on a commission basis.) The smaller works above it are all available and in search of new homes. If you see one that interests you, send me off an email (or comment below), and I’ll get back to you with more information. They will all be posted individually as I adjust the single images. Some of those have already been posted with prices, and are visible by going to my home page and scrolling down.

I’m fortunate to live by a lake with a great sunrise view. This was painted on a morning with a haze over the lake, creating spectacular colors as the sun came up. It glowed yellow-orange as it emerged above the tree line, casting warmth and light upon the whole scene.

I just brought this painting over to RiverWinds Gallery today, along with five others, for their grand re-opening celebration. The reception for the new show will be this Saturday, January 14, from 5-8pm. The address is 172 Main Street, Beacon NY. If you cannot make it to the opening, the gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 6pm.

Solo Exhibit at Who’s Cooking

Yesterday, I hung a solo exhibit at Who’s Cooking in Croton Falls, NY. Sixteen of my smaller paintings are there through the holidays. The image above shows many of my landscape paintings that are in the show. I’ve selected these because small paintings make such ideal holiday gifts. Everybody has a spot to hang a little gem! I’ll have paintings there until Spring, and will switch them out every month or so to provide new shows for customers and visitors. You can see the shows, and simultaneously pick up something for lunch or dinner.

My popular little oil-painted bird portraits, in the gold/cherry, oval frames, are among the paintings in the show. My new camera has given me a much-needed advantage in getting reference images of these precious creatures!

Sepia-toned tree drawings are also represented in the exhibit:

I’m sorry for the glare in the photo, but getting images through the glass on the drawings is challenging at best! If you’d like to be able to see each one better, you can check the link in the last paragraph below for the individual drawings on my website.

I plan to have some themed shows running after the holidays, such as sunrises and sunsets, and one of waterfalls in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. If you keep coming back from time to time, you’ll not only get to see new art shows, but you’ll experience the culinary wonders of the chefs at Who’s Cooking! It’s a fabulous lunch and take-out-dinner place, right near the Croton Falls Train Station. After hanging the show yesterday, I brought home baked cod with dill sauce for my dinner, steak for my husband, and a side dish of broccoli rabe. It was delicious. They also make the best homemade chicken pies I’ve ever tasted. I’m looking forward to sampling more from their menu. They are located at:

Who’s Cooking

For those who are not within visiting distance, these paintings can also be purchased directly off my website and mailed to you. Click this link, then scroll down to see the individual paintings and prices with shipping. Please note that some of the website prices are different from the prices posted at the show. The paintings do not always include the frame if they are being shipped (though some do), whereas all of those in the show are sold framed. It will state on each painting post if the frame is included when sold from the website. Framing is always available at an extra cost if a the frame is not included. Website prices include shipping charges, but not New York State Sales Tax. If you are within NYS, sales tax will also apply. If you have any questions, just email me – JamieWG(at)aol.com.

hudson valley hues card front

Dear Friends and Art-lovers,

I hope you can join me on Saturday, June 11 from 5-8pm at RiverWinds Gallery to celebrate the opening of my solo show, Hudson Valley Hues. I’ll have 11, 24×36″ paintings in the show, plus an assortment of new little ones just off the easel. I have been working on this series of paintings for two years. They are paintings of my favorite scenes throughout the Hudson River Valley. I’m so happy to finally be able to share and show them.

For those who cannot make it to the opening reception, the show will run from June 9 through July 3. The gallery is located at 172 Main Street in Beacon. Hours are Wednesday through Monday from 12-6pm. Please stop by and see the show if you can!

The Big Chill

24×36″, acrylic on paper mounted to hardboard (sealed and varnished, to be framed without glass like an oil painting)

Email me at JamieWG@aol.com if interested in this painting.

This Great Blue Heron usually sticks around for the whole winter. I took a bunch of photos of him from my kitchen window, and painted him in a palette of cool winter blues, huddled against the cold. The painting developed a few small ripples in the process of wet-mounting the paper to a board after the painting was completed. With the painting hanging on the wall, you have to really look carefully to be able to even see them. With that disclosure, I am offering The Big Chill at a huge discount of more than 50%. In spite of the minor flaw, the painting is beautiful and is totally archival. It is varnished to be framed without glass, like an oil painting.

This huge bobcat came to visit us several times during the winter! I set up my telephoto lens so that I’d be ready for him, and managed to capture a few good shots for photo references. It was a brutal winter for wildlife — so cold that our creek froze over a couple of times, which hardly ever happens. Apparently the bobcat found it easier to walk along the ice than through the deep snow. I saw him a few times cruising the brook like this, perhaps in search of ducks or geese, or whatever else he could find in that brutal weather.

A few weeks ago, my friend Melissa came over early in the morning, and we painted beside the brook that runs behind my house. The warm colors of the creek contrasted with the cool greens of foliage. Just as I was almost finished, one of our resident swans came sailing over to check us out. I popped him into my painting before he swam around the bend, and he gave the perfect title to the piece. We saw lots of bird activity that morning; several warblers visited along with a Great Blue Heron, and a deer suddenly splashed across the brook, startling us! The wood duck box up on the tree on the right has housed everything from wood ducks to Screech Owls over the years. We’re never really sure what’s in there at any given time!

This is a scene in my back yard. I painted it from life in early spring, while watching the wood ducks swimming, and enjoying that short time of spring color before the entire landscape goes green. I think the colors of early spring are my favorites. They have a subtle beauty that goes overboard in fall. In spring they feel balanced, natural, and calmingly subdued. Of course, that could just be the way I feel after the bleak starkness of winter!

This is another in my series of large acrylic sketches on illustration board. They are really fun to paint, and I’ve found that calling them “sketches” sets me free to experiment with brushwork, drips, colors, compositions, and other boundaries that I might be hesitant to explore if I call them “paintings” from the outset. I go into it thinking “sketch”, and whatever emerges is what it is!

This is an older painting that I hadn’t seen for awhile, so I decided to pull it up to the top. Every once in awhile, it’s good to look back. :)

This little brook runs behind my house, from its source on the lake to the reservoir. It is the favorite hunting ground of this Great Blue Heron, who is never far away, and often perched on our lawn as you see him here, enjoying his latest meal. It sure was hard to paint him tiny enough to be in scale in this small painting! This was a test drive for a larger version that I’m considering.

My palette:
Titanium White (RGH + Griffin)
Cadmium Yellow Lemon (Rembrandt)
Cadmium Yellow Deep (RGH)
Cadmium Orange (WN Artist)

I gathered with a group of painter friends one morning out by the lake in front of my house. We had a wonderful time together chatting and relaxing while painting the lake in the morning light. This little boat gave the scene a nice focal point. I wondered for awhile how the owner got to the boat. Upon closer inspection, I saw that he had devised a clever pulley system from the shore, which could draw the boat to the land for boarding, and then pull it back out to the post in the water after disembarking. I considered putting those rope lines into the painting, but decided instead to leave the viewer guessing about how the boat could be accessed, just as I had to when first encountering the scene!

On a side note, it never ceases to amaze me how far behind I can get on photographing, adjusting and posting images of my paintings. I thank my lucky stars every day that I am a painter and not a photographer! (Though I often wish I had a better photography skill set.)

Pink Mist at Sunrise

Posted by Jamie on July 18th, 2013

9×6″, pastel on Art Spectrum paper
SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

Sometimes a scene that we see every day can become extraordinary. I’ve had my life enriched by pink morning mist on several occasions, and was fortunate to have my camera with me for some of them! It’s quite a site to behold, and doesn’t seem to stick around for long. As they say, the early bird gets the worm, and I’ve only seen this around sunrise! I think I need to get up early more often.

A couple of weeks ago, I was at Jerry’s Artarama in West Hartford. I saw a box of 48 Charvin “Water-Soluble Pastel Painting Sticks” at a price I couldn’t resist. My friend Melissa came over the other day and we pulled them out to play. I used the Art Spectrum paper because it behaves so well with wet media. I used the pastels to lay in the underpainting, and then used a wet brush to liquify the color. Melissa and I were both impressed with how pigment-rich they were.

My initial plan was to do this little pastel start to finish using those Charvin sticks, but I ended up needing to amplify the selection with more muted colors, better and less chalky darks, and softer pastels. I finished it with a combination of Faber-Castells, Mount Visions, Giraults, and Senneliers, and Conte pastel pencils for a few sharp lines and details.

Sunset Serenity

SOLD! Please email me at JamieWG@aol.com to inquire about a similar painting.

This painting was done from a reference image that I took a long time ago. I find it fascinating how we can see so many different ways to approach a painting using the same image, or even return to the same scene and capture an entirely different mood on a different day. Sunsets provide me with an interesting mix of relaxation and excitement, and I never get tired of painting them or experiencing them!

The boat belongs to my friend Mary. Thank you, Mary, for the nice foreground element, and for providing a strong vertical to break up a horizontal composition!

Last weekend, my husband and I went to the lakeshore to photograph the “supermoon”. We had a wonderful time chatting with neighbors while waiting for the full moon to make its appearance. In the meantime, I pulled out my little pochade box and painted this 5×7″ sunset until the light had changed too much to continue with it. Then I pulled out my camera and tripod and got ready for The Main Event. It was quite spectacular. I will definitely be doing some paintings from the reference images I took!

Below is an image that you can click on for a larger view of what I was painting. By the time I finished my pre-Supermoon painting and took this photo, the light had pretty much gone out of the scene:

A friend came over a couple of weeks ago and we sat in the back yard and painted by the stream. It was that perfect time in spring when there is enough foliage to give some texture to the landscape, and enough color to give it variety. The summer greens take over so quickly after that. I always try to get out as much as I can before that happens!

Foggy Morning by the Brook

It was foggy out this morning, and I’ve really been in the mood to experiment with fog and transparent pigments! This is a view of the brook that runs behind my house in the morning fog. It was painted with just:
Indian Yellow
Quinacridone Red
Ultramarine Blue
Transparent Red Oxide (which I probably could have done without).

There is no white paint. The feeling of luminosity was achieved by the light bouncing through the transparent pigments to the white-primed linen. The highlights in the rocks and lights within the foliage masses were achieved by pulling out paint with brushes or bits of paper towel. Paint was added and subtracted like this until I got the effects I wanted.

I’ve been working mostly with opaque paints for a very long time, and now I’m very excited about exploring the world of transparents! I was ready to break out my opaque pigments on this if needed, but I think I would have lost more than I’d have gained by adding opaque paint in this particular instance.

The Big One — Huge Full Moon last night

The huge, bright full moon last night received a lot of publicity! Apparently this was the largest and brightest the moon will appear for the next 19 years. They said on the news that it was approximately 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual! We had a totally clear sky here last night, so my husband and I went across the field to the lakeshore to take pictures. I brought my little pochade box along and did this small oil painting. There was a gentle breeze over the lake, scattering the reflections as they ran across the surface.

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out my new site where I am posting my sketches! It’s called Hudson Valley Sketches (http://hudsonvalleysketches.blogspot.com). I’m no longer posting them here, so be sure to subscribe over there on the new site if you’d like to receive them in your email box or through your newsreader.

This was such a fun painting to tackle. I definitely had my struggles here. Sometimes a sunset is so spectacular that you just can’t match the beauty you remember seeing. My palette for this painting was:
Titanium White
Cadmium Yellow Lemon
Cadmium Yellow Medium
Pyrrole Red
Cerulean Blue
Cobalt Blue
Ultramarine Blue
Viridian

A few days ago, I posted a series of four square sketches. It seems the winner for the one to paint larger was the winter scene, so I’ll be doing that one shortly.

While there’s still time to ship before the holidays, I’ll be bumping up some of my favorite smaller, unsold works that would be wonderful holiday gifts for that special someone. Give the gift of art — a celebration of beauty and creative inspiration. Purchase two and receive free shipping!

Some time ago, there was a fantastic rainbow over the lake just before sunset. I grabbed my camera and ran outside to get some photo references. This was painted from one of the photos I took. The light and colors were almost too amazing to believe.

This miniature is shipped in a gold gift box, with a gold bow. The easel is included too! It makes the ideal present for any art lover, and looks great set on a small table or shelf. Quarter is shown for size reference.

There’s a little bridge that goes over the east end of Titicus Reservoir in North Salem, New York. It’s quite narrow, with a fair amount of traffic, and definitely not a good spot to try to set up an easel! The western view at sunset from that location is beautiful, so from time to time I make a quick stop to take photo references when it looks like the sunset will be especially inviting. This was painted from a photo taken on one of those evenings.

There are several brands that I use pretty much interchangeably, but I thought I’d pull out mostly Williamsburgh paints for a change. My palette for this painting was:
Cadmium Yellow Medium (Williamsburgh)
Cadmium Red (Williamsburgh)
Red Oxide Transparent (Rembrandt)
Cerulean Blue (Williamsburgh)
Ultramarine Blue (Williamsburgh)
Titanium White (Utrecht and Griffin mixed)
Medium: Liquin Fine Detail

This was painted on one of those gorgeous spring days when everybody should be outside painting! I went to Tilly Foster Farm to take in the beautiful view of the pond and rolling hills.

I used a wash of raw sienna to start off this painting, and a little Liquin Fine Detail to help it start tacking up. The painting was done with a limited palette:
Williamsburg Cadmium Yellow Light
Rembrandt Permanent Red Medium
Winsor Newton old tube of Ultramarine Deep (now French Ultramarine)
Winsor Newton Raw Sienna
Winsor Newton Titanium White

This little, old rowboat resides at the shore of my neighbor’s farm. I went on Monday to paint there. I think there are many paintings to be had at this spot! I’m looking forward to exploring this scene with the boat at least a couple more times in watercolor, and can also envision it in other mediums and seasons.

This painting was done from a photograph I took at Titicus Reservoir in North Salem, New York, just as the sun was setting. I was hoping for more spectacular colors, but a big cloud front moved in, providing a different kind of drama that was more about mood and less about color.

I used just Transparent Red Oxide, Ultramarine Blue, and Titanium White for this painting. I contemplated putting in more color, but sometimes less is more. I think this was one of those occasions.

This is another sunrise view from my living room window. I really enjoy painting “plein air” from there in real time, but this one was done from a photo I took one beautiful winter morning.
