Olana Sunset

Olana, the home of Hudson River School painter Frederic Church, is beautiful at any time, and especially at sunset. I was there this week and did a watercolor painting and a quick watercolor sketch.Wednesday was one of those perfect days, with low humidity, warm, but not too hot temps, and a light breeze. As sunset drew near, the breeze picked up, and I had to put on a long-sleeved shirt — a treat in August, at least for this heat-averse artist. Hints of autumn peering around the corner are always welcome for me.
