Focusing Light on One Part of the Painting

Olana is the Hudson Valley home of 19th century landscape painter Frederic Church (1826-1900) (Link to YouTube video


My goal in this plein-air gouache/watercolor study is to focus light on one part of the painting.


Frederic Church himself inspires me to try this kind of lighting, given that he distributes the light in his paintings in a theatrical way.


Frederic Church designed his home, inspired by his travels in the Holy Land.

Nice :) I'm always learning with you.

What a building. It leaves you rather curious to see the inside. And James, I think your guest in this video was asking to have his portrait painted. 😉

Rich said...

Enjoyed it!
What liberties you took with the lighting.

To me it looks like a stage stet: All kinds of figures would fit in there, where the focus is.

Jim Douglas said...

It's important to give credit to the architect of Olana, Calvert Vaux. Even the official Olana website (https://www.olana.org/history/the-house/) states, "Frederic Church worked closely with architect Calvert Vaux to realize this distinctive home."

James Gurney said...

Jim, true, but even Calvert Vaux acknowledged that Olana was wholly Church's brainchild, and that Vaux was 'only there to make sure it doesn't fall down.'
