Citrus Valley – Daily Painting

December 5th, 2006

“Citrus Valley” – 9 x 12 sketchbook study

Between holidays and business, this week’s paintings may consist of quickie sketches in my sketchbooks. This study, painted in my Raffine book, represents a part of the landscape we visited last Sunday during some high windstorms. The area is near Ojai – inland from Ventura and west of the Interstate 5. Most of the area is agricultural with rolling hills covered with avocado and citrus groves, and many eucalptus windbreaks.

Small watercolor sketches like these (9 x 12) give me some ideas of what I might want to do (or not do) when I translate it into an oil painting.

  1. What a wonderful talent you have Karen! Oh to be able to paint…… The snow one is really good, but I think my favorite is the most recent because it`s a nice summer day!

  2. Tea, surprise – that was just three days ago in So. California, where it pretty much looks like summer year round!

  3. You usually say that these are sketches for a future oil painting. I wonder if the sketches are better than the oil paintings because they have such a freshness about them. A lot of artists in the Geelong region stick with watercolour these days and there are groups that go out to paint each week. I haven’t joined in any of them though friends persist in inviting me. It’s easier for just Peceli and me to go out and have a picnic, do a bit of drawing etc. visit a friend or so on the way back.
