Demos from the PleinAir Convention in Monterey, California

I was honored to be a faculty member at the PleinAir Convention this year where I did several demos indoor and outdoor. Here are some of the photos from the Convention:

I was essentially demonstrating the material covered on my DVD, The Techniques of the Hudson River School Masters

with a very limited palette of ochre, naples yellow, venetian red, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, black, burnt umber, white

The DVD demo!
There were also a couple outdoor painting days where I used the methods above to work from Nature.

Asilomar Beach demo:

Erik Koeppel "Asilomar Beach, Monterey, CA" 7 x 11 in. Oil on panel
Point Lobos demo:

Erik Koeppel "Point Lobos, Carmel, California" 10 x 16 in. Oil on panel
To learn more about how this was done, have a look at my DVD, Q & A, Excerpt, About, Order

Still to come: paintings of the Big Sur Coastline, painting the Yosemite Valley, and photos from the Exeter Artist Talk.

Artist's Talk at Phillips Exeter Academy April 25th

Erik Koeppel "Mt. Washington from Square Ledge" 10 x 16 in. Oil on Canvas

I'm very excited to announce an Artist's Talk at Phillips Exeter Academy in their Lamont Gallery (info below). The talk is in conjunction with their current spectacular exhibition, Luminous Terrain: The Art of the White Mountains, which consists of an extensive selection of 19th Century White Mountain paintings from respected private collections. I'll be bringing some of my sketchbooks, painted sketches, and finished paintings, to talk about how these historic artists approached the landscape, and why I feel driven to follow in their footsteps. I'll be around for about 2 hours, and hope to have a lively discussion with lots of Q and A.

Join painter Erik Koeppel, who works in the tradition of the Hudson River and White Mountain Schools, for an artist's talk. Koeppel will present some of his current work, and discuss how he continues the legacy of representational landscape painting.

They even have a little Thomas Cole painting!

You really have to see this show to believe it. There are many rooms packed with first rate works! We were very honored to be invited to the after party at the home of New Hampshire's Governor, Maggie Hassan

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to seeing you at the talk!
