Eaton Canyon Morning

July 11th, 2007

“Eaton Canyon Morning” 9 x 12 – oil on hardboard – SOLD

This morning was delightfully overcast and cool for an hour or so while I painted this in Eaton Canyon, in the northern part of Pasadena. The wash is bone dry and even the random grasses seemed to be struggling for whatever meager water they may find under the gravel and boulders.

I’m really looking forward to going back in the late afternoon to paint some of those shadows. I’ve painted the same area before in watercolor (below), but not in oil. Another day, another season, another medium – it’s a whole new experience. (And this time I didn’t see or hear anything scarier than a covey of quail!)


Painted this last September – “San Gabriel Sunset” – watercolor

  1. Karen, you’re as good in oils as you are in watercolors! Love both of them. Really beautiful!
    BTW, how do you get your signature on your paintins so perfect!

  2. I love the feel of this morning, Karen– the softness of the sand , the muted colors…
    And is that a haze or mist over the mountains, or low clouds?

  3. I really enjoyed seeing the different styles of paintings in the different mediums from your different experiences at the same place! You’ve done an amazing job on both! Love those clouds in the oil painting – I can feel the coolness of the air.

  4. What a beautiful place! Seeing how different they are, I would guess that you could devote several painting days to that exact location!

  5. They are both exquisite! The difference in the tonal values makes such a difference in the overall picture!

  6. Really lovely paintings, Karen – the sense of place is so strong in both of them, even though they are very different.

  7. These are both heartbreakingly beautiful! You’ve really become a master of plein air painting. Congratulations! I so admire your plein air work as I know how much is involved in making a painting work–from simplifying all the details to making a good composition, let alone painting technique! Gorgeous work!

  8. Both of these are so beautiful! So talented.
