Here are some studies from this year's Hudson River Fellowship centered in Hunter, New York in the Catskills. This year I primarily divided my time between Platte Clove and Elka Park. I'll share a few pictures at a time over the next couple of weeks. My primary purpose this year was to find general textures, details and scenes that can have broad application in whatever compositions I decide to pursue
Here are some close up texture and plant studies, these were all done in a small area in Elka Park in single sessions. They are all done in oil on prepared Canson Canva paper.
