Big Sur Seascape Oil Painting – California Coast – Karen Winters Daily Painting

March 27th, 2008

“California Coast” (near Big Sur) 16 x 20 oil on canvas

When we were first married, young and footloose, my husband and I loved to travel up and down California on photo safaris. One of our favorite places was the coastline. So it’s not surprising that it would be a favorite subject mine for painting, also.

A few days ago we spent hours on beaches in Orange County, just watching the surf and studying how the color changes with the passage of time. The results of those studies will be seen here soon.

  2. The blue is just beautiful! I wish I were there…it’s gray and freezing here…with sleet! Your paintings are gorgeous!

  4. Your choice of colors is simply gorgeous! I love the grasses in the foreground and the contrast against the sea. Scrumptious!

  5. The way you’ve tackled this scene is great. I think this is truly one of your best. The colors, and composition, light all are handled very well.

  7. I feel like I’m standing on one knoll looking over at another. Exquisite!

  8. Yes — one of your best! I love the warm grass in the immediate foreground, but the cool cliff foreground. The shadows are really quite exciting in this one — you’ve truly captured the light!

  9. I love the light and colors. You must be beautiful to create such beautiful compositions.
