Plein Air Hudson River Painting

Clermont Morning Plein Air Landscape

Clermont morning Plein Air Landscape, painting by Jan Blencowe

About This Painting: I've just returned from a 3 day painting trip on the Hudson River. Painted en plein air at the Clermont Mansion along the Hudson River in NY,those are the Catskill Mountains in the distance. This piece has lovely, soft morning colors in a contemporary square format.

I'm getting ready for a group show in Rhinebeck, NY opening, June 5th, that features Hudson River paintings as part of the Hudson River Quadricentennial Celebration.

A plein air painting trip seemed the natural thing to do, so I got a few paintings, lots of photos for reference and some great first hand experience with the breathtaking beauty of the river.

I'm pretty busy catching up after 3 days off the internet, but there will be more Hudson River paintingsgs in the days ahead.
