Boulder Rock and Kaaterskill High Peak in the Catskill Mountains

This sketch for The Sketchbook Project 2012 features Boulder Rock, with a view of Kaaterskill High Peak across the clove in the distance. I hiked there yesterday with my husband, but the weather turned and I didn't have a chance to paint the scene on location. Fortunately, I took a photo before the light got bad, and painted it from the picture. I used Golden Fluid Acrylics, and I do like the way they are working on this paper! I only have two, two-page spreads left before this sketchbook is finished. I'm really happy to be able to share so many views of the beautiful Hudson River Valley and Catskill Mountains when the book goes on the world tour next year!


  1. It's beautiful. Tempts me to buy some of the Fluid Acrylics to try.

  2. Helen, I think that Golden Fluid Acrylics were made in heaven. :)))
