Dana Point Surf – Karen Winters seascape oil painting

16 x 20 oil on canvas
Here’s another recent painting of one of my favorite new scenic haunts – the harbor at Dana Point. This scene is just outside of the breakwater, not far from the Ocean Institute.

I’m tired but content today at the end of a long weekend. Tomorrow I begin work on a few new paintings for upcoming exhibits. But first, a good night’s sleep. Thanks to all the folks who stopped by to visit – it was a hotter ‘n you know what weekend with temps in the high 90s, but we managed to survive and have a great time.

    The subtle color variations in the water are just breathtaking. This is gorgeous, Karen.

    Nicely done. I like especially the cool feel to the water and the warm realism in that rock color.

    Definitely a west coast beach; you don’t see rocks like that on the east coast. Beautiful work.

    Another beauty and the coolness is welcome but not over whelming. Just a place I’d like to be. Nice soft complements.
