Study of Durand

Daily painting for May 3rd - 6x8" - Oil on archival panel

Asher Durand was probably the second most notable of the artists of the Hudson River School, after Thomas Cole. This is a study I've done of his painting "In the Catskills". No, I wasn't trying to make a copy of it, but rather just trying to achieve the same values and palette. Durand's piece is about 52x60", and to attempt a copy when you're working on about 1/8th of the size would be a fool's errand.
