Laguna Reflections – Crescent Cove – Karen Winters original oil painting

May 21st, 2008

“Laguna Beach Reflections (at Crescent Cove)”
14 x 18 oil on canvas

If you would like to find out if this painting is still available for sale…..

(I have more Laguna paintings, please see My seascapes page

For all of your folks who visited me over the weekend at Sierra Madre, here’s how the painting turned out that I was working on when you stopped by.
I had a great time painting there and the cool scene seemed to help me tolerate the stifling heat.

This scene was inspired by my visit to Laguna Beach a month or so ago. What attracted me the most were the reflections in the sand, revealed for just moments as each wave receded. I’ve considered adding a few sea birds to this, either a sandpiper on the shore or a few gulls. What do you think?

I can hardly wait to go back there and paint with those cool ocean breezes.

  1. OMG! All these paintings have just been spectacular! They’re all such a wonderful tribute to Southern California, Karen. I am loving the reflections of the palm trees and, even more, that smell of salty sea spray. Just the image we all need after those 100+ days. [sigh]

  2. These last couple of ocean scenes have been spectacular! Sand Pipers would be an interesting addition but the painting certainly doesn’t lack interest with out them.

  3. I gotta tell ya – I’m from So Cal originally, but live in New England now, and these paintings are so good they make me homesick!!! They are spot-on in regards to what it’s like and how I remember the subject locations. I follow your blog daily not only to admire your work, but to remember my roots. You really have a knack for capturing the beauty of wherever you go. Thanks, Karen!

  4. Just beautiful!! I love how you captured the green seawater with the sun hitting it as it curls over. WOW!!

  5. I vote for birds. I think they would liven it up a bit more.
    Nice. Like it.
    I have been there, to that spot, and sketched, haven’t done the full painting yet. One of my sons-in-law skin-dives (a teacher of it now) in that area.

  6. It astonishes me how you can paint waves so realistically, especially from life. That green at the top where the light shows through is just perfect.

  7. Oh Karen, I could just step into your cooling ocean.

  8. Hi Karen, This is so lovely. You can smell the sea and feel the breeze. (It is hot here today.) Birds would be good, too. I like the clouds and the reflections.
