Hudson Crossings Park, warm and grey with a massive DAMN!
44 F very cloudy.
The fence wasn't there the last time I did this scene and I was really disappointed to see it.
#443 Hudson River @ Hudson Crossings Park

I painted this scene in August of 13'. It's at the end of an island that separates the canal with the falls, and about 3/4 mile hike in.
I started with the "most different" thing.
When I say I use the sight-size method, it simply means that I set up the panel next to the scene and determine where my "view-point" is, and do all my looking from that spot. Here you can see the first light, I will get it here then compare the painting and start to place the other elements in the same manner.
Considering how "grey" everything looked there was a lot of variation in the tones of the greys.
I had gone to Schylerville to drop off some paintings at the Laffer Gallery, I got into a group show opening next Saturday.
This is where I ended up.
Here is the spot, still not knowing why a 5 foot high fence was necessary.
