Lake Casitas California Impressionist Landscape Oil Painting

December 26th, 2008

Lake Casitas Sunset
16 x 20 oil on canvas
Available


For more information about this painting, please write

One of the best bass fishing spots in California, so I’ve been told, is Lake Casitas in Ojai, not far from the Pacific Ocean and Carpinteria. The lake is formed by Casitas Dam and offers year round camping and other recreational activities. The day we were there it was late fall and more than a little crisp. I’m looking forward to returning again to be inspired by a different light and season.

What appealed to me about this location were the soft muted colors, slightly warmed by late afternoon light. Just an hour before or after it would not have revealed these jewel like tones.

  1. What beautiful colours Karen – and beautifully painted.

    I’m just sitting her pondering on the my plan for 2009 and the value of drawing the same thing throughout the year at different times of day and in different seasons – and your post reminds me of how one location can look so very different depending on when you paint it.

  4. All of us have picked up on those colors– as Jana says, jewels. And as Katherine says, such different things are seen in changing light.
