The Hudson River Fellowship

The Hudson River Fellowship is a program to revive the traditional skills of the landscape painters of the Hudson River School. Field studies are an essential part of the curriculum, including pencil drawings, tonal studies and plein air oil sketches. Theory and larger studio painting are also covered.
This charcoal and white chalk sketch is by James David Smillie, dated 1881.
