Carpinteria Bluffs Sunset Oil Painting – California Impressionist Karen Winters

December 16th, 2008

Carpinteria Bluffs Sunset
16″ x 16″
oil on canvas
SOLD

This is one of the paintings inspired by our recent trip to Carpinteria, on California’s central coast. The late afternoon marine layer had come in, shrouding the Channel Islands in a misty glow that reminded me of those tales of Arthurian Avalon. The sky colors were both delicate and intense their various layers, and this stately eucalyptus tree was bathed in all that glorious light.

I had not had the pleasure of visiting Carpinteria Bluffs before, but it’s a place that I want to return to, especially late in the day. So many beautiful vistas to enjoy.

  1. I never cease to be amazed by the ability you have to create a “mood” with your paintings. Beautiful job.

  2. Karen,
    Congratulations on a gorgeous painting. That is masterful color. It’s one thing to slap some red and orange in the sky to simulate a sunset; it’s quite another to capture a sunset’s color convincingly, with variety and color harmony , and this you did quite well. And, yes, you got the mood: It makes me want to be there–always a good sign with a painting! And that’s a wonderful depiction of the Eucalyptus, accurate, convincing, evocative.

  3. I agree with Bill and Susanne about the colors and mood. I would like to be there, too.

  4. I live in Carpinteria, and the bluffs are definitely beautiful. As someone who has walked along those cliffs since I was young, I think you definitely captured the feeling of the place, from the fog-shrouded islands to the eucalyptus trees. Thank you!
