Meet your instructor:
Kathleen B. Hudson emphasizes dynamic light and atmosphere in her paintings. She is a Signature Member of the Plein Air Painters of America and a Fellow in the American Society of Marine Artists. In 2017, Hudson received the Grand Prize in the 6th Annual PleinAir Salon for her painting Bright Morning, Timberline Falls, which was featured on the July 2017 cover of PleinAir Magazine. The same month Southwest Artnamed her an “Artist to Watch.” She has since won numerous awards at national plein air events, including back-to-back Artists’ Choice awards at the Laguna Invitational and Artists’ Choice at Forgotten Coast.
Hudson moved from her native Kentucky to Boston in the fall of 2005 to begin an undergraduate degree at Harvard University, where she painted, studied mountain travel narratives, and led backpacking trips for fellow students. She now lives with her family in Colorado Springs, Colorado. When she’s not outside painting from life, you can find her in the studio creating larger-scale landscapes
“You’re not creating a portrait of a waterfall, you’re creating a dynamic light and dark composition … and you can get creative with it.”
— Kathleen Hudson
Will help me plan and paint my falls painting.
This is an excellent video by Kathleen Hudson. I have always admired her prep work as she masses in a tonal wash and then wipes away to reveal a beautiful monoc...
I would highly recommend Kathleen Hudson and any of her instructional videos or workshops. I had the pleasure of attending one of her workshops in Montana where I learned some valuable tips and met some great people. She is genuinely interested in helping her students. You artwork will definitely go up a level.
I was already following Kathleen Hudson on Instagram because her waterfall paintings capture light and motion in a rare way. I really love her paintings! I was just starting to work on a painting of the waterfall close to my home, and so the timing couldnÊ»t be better! I will be painting two versions - the one I already have blocked in I will take to finish, and I want to start a new one, same image that I am already familiar with, but using an underpainting executed the way she demonstrated it on this video. It will be interesting to see the improvement. I have seen lots of national-guild level demos over the years. I feel like I picked up an unusually rich amount of new tips and techniques from her demo. She is an incredibly talented artist with master-level experience with painting waterfalls. She understands light and water deeply and shares subtle insights on bringing the painting closer to the way the human eye perceives light as opposed to a camera. She is generous with her knowledge. I feel I have received a great gift from her demo. Thank you Kathleen! I hope you see this because I really appreciate you teaching at a high level like this and would like to express my gratitude! I am not a stranger to painting waterfalls, but I will improve my future paintings having seen this demo! I highly recommend this demo to anyone who wants to paint waterfalls in oil.
