Owens River Fishing Spot – California impressionist oil painting

January 7th, 2009

“Owens River – A good day for fishing”
14 x 18 oil on canvas
SOLD to a lovely couple relocating to Montana

This new panting features what I’ve been told is one of the best fishing spots on the Lower Owens River. It’s near Highway 168 close to a place known to the locals as “Black Rock.” In the background you can see the Eastern Sierras and the Alabama Hllls, the choclatey brown lower range, still glowing in afternoon light. For many years, the water in the Owens River was diverted for Los Angeles. Now, some of the water flows again through local steams in the Owens Valley, and the landscape is recovering. I understand that some of the best bass fishing in California can be had in this spot. The day we were there a fisherwoman was doing well. I don’t have much experience with freshwater fishing, but this place looks like a little bit of heaven.

Because the painting is wet, it’s hard to get the look of the clouds without excessive reflection. There is detail in them; it’s just hard to see. I’ll try shooting this again when it dries.

Here’s a detail of just some of the native grasses:

  2. I love this. I think your pictures which include these warm orange tones are my favourites.

  4. Karen, this is gorgeous! You’ve really captured this beautiful scene well. I like how the clouds hover over the mountains and I like how you’ve captured the folds in the hills and the reflections in the water.
