At a Lavender Farm – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Monday, January 28th, 2008

“At a Lavender Farm” 5 x 7 mixed media (watercolor and acrylic) We have some friends who live in northern California who own a lavender farm. The climate is perfect for growing this beautiful fragrant plant. The plants actually grow in more regular rows than this, but I sort of like the wild blowsy look.

Sunday Sunshine – Karen Winters daily painting

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Sunday Sunshine – 6″ x 6″ – watercolor with colored pencil accent SOLD to a collector from Texas Rather, this is the sunshine we WISH we had right about now. It’s been cold, wet and lightning is promised tonight. But I really can’t complain because this sort of weather is such a rare event and [...]

Arroyo Pond – Arroyo Seco Painting – Karen Winters

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

Arroyo Pond – 12 x 16 oil on canvas When the rains come, a part of the upper Arroyo Seco (in Hahmongna Park) can fill up with water, creating a seasonal pond. Here’s how it looked on one overcast day in early spring. I’m wondering what the current rainstorm will bring (this was from a [...]

Winter Reflections – Daily Painting

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Winter Reflections – 10.8 x 7.8 inches – watercolor on paper A subdued day – quiet colors under a grayed sky. Could a few drops of rain be ready to fall? Early this morning, when there was a break in the storm, I went to Hahamongna Park to see how the Arroyo Seco river was [...]

Arroyo Ramble – Pasadena Arroyo Seco

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Arroyo Ramble 12 x 16 inches – oil This is a part of the Arroyo Seco – a sandy river bottom that fills with water whenever there’s a big rain (like now.) One of these days soon I’m going to head over there and try to find some way to plein air paint while the [...]

Tumbling Down – Karen Winters daily painting

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

“Tumbling Down” – 10 x 14 – mixed media on watercolor paper (wc and acrylic) Last night, after I decided to stop working on an oil painting (for the moment), I took out a watercolor pad and thought I’d experiment with some of what I heard Jerry Stitt talking about – painting what things are [...]

Spring Comes to the Arroyo – Karen Winters – Arroyo Seco daily painting

Monday, January 21st, 2008

“Spring Comes to the Arroyo” – 12 x 16 oil on canvas Spring is first announced the the appearance of bright green grasses in the arroyo. These may emerge within weeks of the winter rain, covering the parched mountains and hillsides with brilliant chartreuse fuzz. Rosettes of mustard plants germinate and provide patches of darker [...]

Breaking Through – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

“Breaking Through” – 16 x 20 – oil on canvas – SOLD This is the next in my series of marine paintings and it will go to the Descanso Gardens gallery in a day or so to replace the one that sold this past Monday. I’m really enjoying exploring this subject matter. I’m thinking that [...]

­ A Life Drawing

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

Female portrait – for practice – charcoal on newsprint One of my goals this year was to take a life drawing class – working from a live model. I’ve drawn from models on some other occasions but i was never close enough to get a good look at the head, and the models were nude [...]

Peppertree Road – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Monday, January 14th, 2008

Peppertree Road – watercolor sketch Here’s another watercolor vignette from my sketchbook while I’m working on another large oil seascape. (To be posted as soon as it’s done.) My cold/flu bug is gone (at least enough) that I can contemplate painting in oils again, and so I am. This little sketch was derived from color [...]
