Paintings of the Adirondacks

Erik Koeppel "the Wilmington Flume" 43 x 41 Oil on Canvas Available at McColl Fine Art




 
I had a great time painting at the Publisher's Invitational Paint Out in the Adirondacks. Where I stayed at Paul Smith's College with about 100 other artists, painting the beautiful Adirondack scenery. The above painting was done in the studio following the same event three years ago.

Here are some of the new outdoor studies that were made on the trip:

Erik Koeppel "High Falls, Adirondacks" 16 x 12 in. Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel "Clouds Over Whiteface" 10 x 16 in. Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel "Farm in the Adirondacks" 6 x 12 in. Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel "Study of Clouds Over Whiteface" 5 x 9 in. Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel "Farm in the Adirondacks" 8 x 16 in. Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel :"Study of Birches" 6 x9 in. Oil on panel


Erik Koeppel "Pool in the Adirondacks" 12 x 10 in. Oil on panel
I look forward to reworking some of these in the studio and making larger paintings based on some of these scenes.

Here are some previous Adirondack pictures:

Erik Koeppel "Fishermen in the Adirondacks" 20 x 30 in. Oil on Canvas Private Collection

Erik Koeppel "Artist at the Wilmington Flume" 12 x 16 in.Oil on panel, Private Collection

Summer Workshop, 6 days in NH with the Grand Central Academy

Erik Koeppel "Glory of the Presidential Range" 14 x 24 in. Oil on Canvas

Lauren Sansaricq and I will be once again teaching a workshop alongside the Hudson River Fellowship in Jackson, NH.

description:

Techniques of the Hudson River School with Erik Koeppel & Lauren Sansaricq in NH

July 10 - 15, 2014 (6 instructed days. Instructors alternate days)
$775 ($400/deposit)

Location: Jackson, NH in the White Mountain National Forest

Limit: 12 students 
Deposit due upon registration. Final balance by June 2nd.
Regardless of your level of experience our goal as instructors will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting. In this workshop we will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great American Landscape Painters of the 19th Century. By painting in locations actually portrayed by the Hudson River School, we will discover a deeper understanding of how these artists approached the challenge of rendering the landscape before them.
Although we encourage painting, students wishing to learn landscape drawing for the entire 6 days are welcome. We will address the following: compositional sketching, light and atmosphere in grisaille, outdoor painting in color.

To enroll, contact the GCA at gcaclasses@gmail.com

or try to find it on this list on their website: http://www.grandcentralacademy.org/studies.php?sid=3
