California Sunset Landscape Impressionist Painting – Karen Winters

September 8th, 2008

California Sunset
5 x 7 inch oil on panel

In the wide open heartland of California’s Central Valley, the skies are big and the land is rich and bountiful. This plein aire style impressionistic landscape painting captures the glory of the waning day. I can’t pinpoint the exact location, but the surrounding names are picturesque, Buttonwillow, Lost Hill, Tranquility.

Just for fun, here’s a closeup of one part of the painting, showing the brushstrokes and delicate color:

  1. Close up shows strokes at different directions.Why is it so?

  2. Madan … because it was fun to paint that way and captured the turbulence of the clouds better than making them all in one direction and orderly.. The closeup is much bigger than the painting in real life, which is only 5 inches by 7 inches.

  3. What an exceptionally interesting post. It’s so neat to see the way people paint …. Hopefully I can learn from you experts.
    This is yet another of your really lovely paintings.
    Karen… when you do those little 5 x7 paintings, are they just to practice, for fun, to sell, or to use to make bigger studio paintings? If so, HOW do you use them because they are bound to be very different than a larger painting would be.
    Also… are the sold paintings on the left side of the blog all different sizes? They are so lovely and I’m wondering if one can capture so much lovely information in very small paintings. Some of them convey such a graceful peace…. yummm.

  4. This one sings! A lot of drama in a small space, so well done!

  5. I love how you captured the beauty and majesty of the sky. It’s a simple painting, yet holds big impact.

  6. Love the close up!

    I get the fun of packing that lovely giant sky into a tiny 5×7 frame. Awesome!
