Pepper Trees – Daily Painting

November 17th, 2006

“Pepper Trees near Lake Piru” 7.5″ x 11″ Watercolor on 140# paper
For sale

Almost as common as eucalyptus are California’s pepper trees, which, in the summer, are heavily laden with pink peppercorns. These tall fluffy trees are especially common along highways, and scent the air with a spicy fragrance when the fallen peppers are crushed.

After I painted this I thought it almost verged on the abstract with large bands of color, shape and texture but no real center of interest.

  1. Oh, lovely! I love those mountains and the light quality in the trees and those clouds on the tops of the mountains. Your paintings have so much light and movement in them.

  4. It’s absolutely beautiful! You’ve really captured the ruggedness of those mountains as well as the liquid movement of pepper trees!! I’ve noticed this sky technique of yours before, the way the blue bleeds into a white horizon is very effective!! Love it!

  5. I particularly like the shape of the mountains.

  6. What great mountains you have near your place! It’s a strong kind of painting.
    Geelong has a few hills, but not in our suburb.
    Peppercorn trees here are a reference to a historical past – early settlers planted them so mostly it’s a sign of some old farm or house. Their trunks are good to draw, often twisty and textured.

  7. I love the mountains in this. Calif Peppers are one of my favorite trees (grown in the right location). Beautiful and yes, a bit toward abstract.
