more field studies from HRLF

Still having an awesome time up at the Hudson River Landscape Fellowship! Here are some more field studies. I photographed the work in really poor lighting and am trying to see if we can organize some better documentation of the art for future blog posts.

I hope that you can answer a question for me.
If a toned panel is used for oil studies, is it a warm midtone?

Eric Koeppel is a genius landscape painter. I wonder why he doesn't have a website.

What's going on with these Eric Koeppel paintings?! These can't be plein air studies... right??

Bob--
you didn't find http://www.erikkoeppel.com/ ?

I think his name may be misspelled here.

Hi Gregory - you can used a panel toned with burnt umber. But some people leave the panel white so they can paint an underpainting on-site with burnt umber, leaving the white of the panel for the lights. Then they paint color over that.

Yes, Eric does these paintings en plein air. He spends 2 days on each. He's very fast, we are all impressed :) He paints a full-color thin wash first, not a burnt umber underpainting.
