Hudson River Marsh - Reference Materials & Color Block In

Starting a new painting is always exciting! I'm continuing my series of 20 landscapes focusing on the enduring strength of the land, focusing on large, simplified shapes and dark values.

 You can also view today's video on my YouTube Channel while you're there you can subscribe to my channel and receive an automatic email alert whenever I post a new video.

In this video I show you my reference photo and the quick watercolor sketch I did to flesh out the possibilities of the scene. The thing that really grabbed my attention in the photo was the way the waterways carved up the marsh in to large interesting shapes.
