Tender Sea – Carpenteria – California Impressionist Seascape Oil Painting – Karen Winters

The Tender Sea – Carpinteria at dusk
6″ x 8″ oil

The subtle colors after sunset were the inspiration for this seascape study of Carpinteria. The delicate hues invoke a quiet contemplative mood. No crashing surf here, just the waves delicately touching the shore. California’s ever-present eucalyptuses frame the shoreline. Even tossed by salty wilds, they prevail.
