Hudson Heritage:

An Artist's Perspective on Architecture

50 excellent quality pen and ink wash drawings of important Hudson Valley Architectural Gems covering 200 years of history from NYC to Albany drawn by a descendant of the Duyckincks, 4 generations of Dutch American painters in NY from 1635.  The artist/author is now a muralist working partly in South Carolina and in the Adirondack Mountains of New York state.

Karl B. Smith uses paper as a support for many different media including pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, gouache, and acrylic.  Some of these works are created as preliminaries for mural projects; others are produced as artworks to stand on their own.  They usually range in size from 8"x 10" to 40"x 60".

All paper used is hand made and archival in quality.
