"Red Sails" by Kathleen B. Hudson

Red Sails (2017)
Oil, 24 x 36 in.

Kathleen Hudson found inspiration for this piece in the strong contrasts of light and dark, emphasizing the warm red of the schooner’s sails against the darker blues and greens of the distant shoreline.

About the Artist:

Kathleen B. Hudson lives in Lexington, Kentucky. She has a studio at Artists’ Attic in downtown Lexington and is a member of the Copley Society of Art in Boston, Massachusetts. Hudson moved from her native Kentucky to Boston in the fall of 2005 to begin a degree at Harvard University. During her years in Boston, she came to love the beautiful New England landscape as she painted, studied history and literature, and led backpacking trips for fellow students. After graduating, Hudson was selected to join Boston’s Copley Society of Art, the oldest non-profit art association in America.

In 2013 Hudson returned to Kentucky. When she’s not outside painting her beautiful surroundings in the heart of the Bluegrass, you can find her in the studio creating a series of landscapes that emphasize the dynamic interplay of light, shadow, and atmospherics. Last month Hudson received the Grand Prize in PleinAir magazine’s 6th Annual PleinAir Salon.
