University of Redlands Sunset – Daily Painting

October 26th, 2007

“Sunset on the Quad” – (University of Redlands) 5 x 7 oil
SOLD

This is one of the paintings I did last weekend en plein air at University of Redlands, about halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. It was painted in the last 20 minutes of light of the day, when the colors are most intense and represents a view of the Administration Building from the viewpoint of the quad. Only a handful of painters were left at this time, but the colors were worth waiting for.
Painting at that speed means giving up actual detail for suggestion of detail, which is different kind of challenge and one that I enjoy.

This is one of the pieces that will be in the U. Redlands show, along with two other plein air paintings and a big bunch of other regional and desert scenes, some of which have already been posted here.

  1. Somehow, the lack of detail makes you focus even more on the incredible light you’ve captured. This is gorgeous.

  2. It’s great how you captured the light.
    And it’s also cool that you sold it so fast :)

  5. I agree — the light in this piece is spectacular and just exactly what plein aire should be all about! Congrats on such a speedy sale, too.

  6. Gorgeous capture of light here. I agree with the previous post, the lack of detail is one of the things that make this painting extra special.
