Field Studies from the Fellowship

Here are a few examples of the field studies we have been doing up here at the Hudson River Fellowship. There are 20 artists here, so this is hardly a good representation of everyone's work. I will try to post something from every artist throughout the coming weeks.

"I would urge on any young student in landscape painting, the importance of painting direct from Nature as soon as he shall have acquired the first rudiments of Art ... Let him scrupulously accept whatever she presents him, until he shall, in a degree, have become intimate with her infinity, and then he may approach her on more familiar terms, even venturing to choose and reject some portions of her unbounded wealth; but never let him profane her sacredness by a willful departure from truth." -- from Asher B. Durand's Letters on Landscape Painting.
