Tuscan Sunset – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Tuscan Sunset – 5″ x 7″ oil –


I like to paint sunsets. At that time of day the colors can be stronger and the lengthening shadows add interest to the composition. This is romanticized impression of a scene in Tuscany.

I am busily getting ready for the Montrose Artwalk this Saturday. If you’re in LA, please stop by. If you’ve been to the show at Descanso this one will contain mostly new work only some of which have been previewed here on this blog. Montrose is adjacent to Glendale in the Crescenta-Canada valley, northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

    I think it is very much Van Gogh….love the light and shadows. The sun reminds me of Vincent. Great work Karen!

    I was transfixed by the shadow falling from the three poplar? trees in Tuscan Sunset and i caught my breath.
    just want to congratulate you, well done. I love that image!
