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!

Hudson River Autumn Above the Marsh

I had a wonderful autumn day last week painting with friends along the Hudson River. We went to Boscobel Restoration in Garrison NY, where there is a long bluff overlooking Constitution Marsh and the river. The marsh was just starting to take on that reddish autumn glow, and an enormous sailing yacht went by, providing a great focal point out in the river. This is always one of my favorite vistas to paint — especially as the marsh turns to warm colors in spring and fall.

Fall is just beginning here, but I still have a bunch of my summer paintings to post! If you’ve been tagging along on my blog, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve loved doing these watercolor creek paintings this year. Some have focused on reflections, some on foliage like overhanging tree limbs and branches, and this one is all about the light streaming through from the back of the painting and hitting the water. I’m going to really miss these warm summer days, standing along the stream banks with my easel. I think I’ll have to frame a few of these and hang them in my house to remind me of what it felt like!

At the northeastern edge of the Catskill Mountains lies Winter Clove, home to many stunning ravines and waterfalls. This one, along the Kiskatom Creek, has a beautiful covered bridge above it, and a clear, nearly viridian-covered pool at the bottom. I went for a hike here with my husband, and had to make a return trip with my paints!

I have a favorite field I like to paint from at Frederic Church’s Olana estate in Hudson NY. Hudson River School artist Church did a lot of sunset paintings from that area of his property. I was walking along the trail past one of his painting spots close to sunset when I caught this opening in the trees, overlooking the Hudson River through the clearing. I started to paint it on location, but couldn’t finish in time before it got dark. I snapped a bunch of photos while painting, and finally had a chance to finish it up today. I definitely want to check out this scene again at other times of day, and in other seasons. They’ve been working a lot on clearing overgrowth to bring some of these views back that have gotten overgrown as the years go by. I’m always excited to see what’s new in the landscape there!

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.

Sunset Rock was a favorite destination of many of the Hudson River School artists. It’s long been one of my own favorite locations as well. This western view overlooking North South Lake is well known, but the south-facing view is equally engaging.

Below you can see a photo of the painting in progress on location. It sometimes takes awhile for me to get paintings photographed and up on my website; in this case, the painting sold before I had a chance to post it here.

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.

This is one of the many stunning, old trees at Olana, home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. This tree is right near the site of Church’s old studio. I went on a drawing/painting spree with trees this year, and especially enjoyed working in these warm sepia colors on toned paper.

Unbelievable as it may seem, this is my fifth artistic rendition of this tree overlooking the Hudson River at Olana. I think after this, I’ll just start to title them by number as a series! Like the others, I painted it on location at Olana, home of Hudson River School artist, Frederic Church.

It’s not often that I find a vertical composition I really like of a Boscobel scene. I usually paint that vista in a panoramic fashion, but the path of the marsh channels works well this way too. Maybe there is a new series of verticals coming!It would certainly be a different way for me to explore this landscape that I’ve been painting for so many years.

This was painted on location at Boscobel Restoration in Garrison, New York, toward the end of one of those stellar, long, summer days. The scene overlooks Constitution Marsh and the Hudson River. Helicopters were flying overhead in formation from West Point as I painted!

This was painted from private property overlooking the Hudson River in autumn on a hazy, overcast day. I ended up getting rained out, and finished it in the studio! It’s a view overlooking the northern section of the Hudson Highlands from Garrison. The scene takes in West Point, Cold Spring, Beacon, and beyond. I felt like I was up in the clouds!

I spent a magical day painting at Boscobel. The weather was ideal, and a huge buck was staring at me from the distance. (Expect to see a painting of him soon!) There was tug and barge traffic out on the river, helicopter formations flying overhead from West Point, and good company with other artists. It’s hard to beat a day like that.

Over the weekend, I visited The Stone Church in Dover Plains with my husband. It was such an exciting location that I couldn’t wait to paint there. I went back today to capture this vantage point. I finished just as light started to come into the interior of the cave from above. I can see that this would be a great spot to explore from many angles, and at different times of day too. It could be my new fave painting spot!

This fall painting was done standing along the lakeshore at the DEC North South Lake Campground. There were fisherman and kayakers, as well as changing light, especially since I had to make a return trip to finish the painting. But the biggest change of all was when a DEC work crew came to trim the foliage I was painting! The guys were so nice, and agreed to leave this foreground tree alone so that I could finish the painting. Below is an image that you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the painting:

I found a wonderful park in the mountains for walking, photography and painting. It’s called Windham Path. Whoever designed it kept the path winding around clusters of trees, through fields to magical mountain views, and alongside streams. The path is gravel and constructed with great drainage, so even after a rain, it’s not muddy. My husband and I had some great walks here, and I went back in late fall with my paints. I’m sure I’ll be painting much more of it next season, but I was fortunate to have come across it at peak foliage time! Below is an image you can click on for a larger view of the painting:

This painting was recently rented for a gallery scene in the new, upcoming HBO series, “Divorce”! It was exciting to work with a production company. I was impressed with the way they handled all the details in such a short time frame. I’m looking forward to seeing three of my paintings, including this one, in the final episode of the first season. There was no word on when the series was going to air, but possibly over the summer or in the fall.

The Thorn Preserve in Woodstock, New York is a favorite painting spot that I’ve discovered this past year. Every season has its unique aura there. The light strikes the eastern side of Overlook Mountain very early in the morning, and the tall trees cast their long shadows over the paths carved into the grasses and wildflowers. By 9:00 or so, that’s all gone as the sun rises above the tree line. On this particular day, the purplish blossoms were just starting to fade. I went back a couple of days later, and they were all gone! Below is an image that you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the painting:

This large, colorful, splashy acrylic was painted on site at Olana, overlooking the Hudson River. It’s probably my favorite Hudson River view, and I’ve painted it on location a number of times in smaller formats. I always think about how many Hudson River School painters stood in this very spot, gazing at the distant Catskill Mountains while trying to capture the light and scenery here.

I didn’t have a setup to photograph large works very well until recently, so this large spring scene hasn’t yet made its debut on my website! It’s a perfect size for over a sofa, mantle or dining room wall.

What could be better than painting with a good friend along the Hudson River on a beautiful, unseasonably warm day in late fall? Not much! I always enjoy the view of Storm King and the Hudson from the western vantage point of this park. Sometimes I think that plein air painting is just an excuse to get out and enjoy the scenery!

I really love this view from Frederic Church’s Olana estate. It takes me back to the heart of the Hudson River School, overlooking the farms and fields where it first began, and Church’s first home on the property there. I’ve painted the scene in different seasons and formats. This was my first go at 2:1 panoramic proportions. I am liking this ratio for the scene! Here it is in its glory, with the summer greens, lower fields and far-off hillsides. Below is an image you can click on for a larger, clearer view of the scene:

This was painted on location at a horse rescue farm. The rolling hills and tree lines made for a beautiful setting. The path didn’t exist, but I did a few preliminary sketches and felt it added a lot to the composition, so I pulled out my Artistic License and put it in there!
