Painting the Sunset

We are having an amazing time up here at the Hudson River Fellowship. The weather has been sunny and nice, with only passing showers and a lot less mosquitoes than last year! During the day everyone goes to different locations for painting, and around 8:00 PM we all meet up to paint the sunset. We spend the days focused on detail and patient observation of nature, and the sunset is a completely different challenge. The colors change very fast and we are forced to be quick and bold with our painting. It's a fun way to end the day. I'll post some examples of sunset paintings soon.

and they're off! it's a mad rush to capture the brilliant scene
