"Sierra Nevadas" ~ 24"x30" A Painting a Day Hudson River School California Landscapes Paintings by Connie Tom

This was another intense study that I did of one of the Hudson River School masters, Albert Bierstadt that painted back in the 1800's. He, Frederick E. Church, and Jasper Cropsey are my favorites had the most dramatic lighting, mood and atmosphere. I am very thankful for what I have learned from having done many of these studies. I now incorporate the techniques in my more contemporary paintings. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed painting it! ~ Connie
