Peaceful stream – California impressionist oil painting

February 19th, 2009

Peaceful Stream
6 x 8 inches
oil on canvas

This small painting evolved as a study as I experimented with some ways to work with texture and color in clouds and reflected water using a springtime color palette. Although I do most of my paintings of specific places, sometimes I work with the landscape in a more abstract way. This is not a painting of a specific place but is inspired by landscapes and skies I’ve seen all over our state. The challenge is to unify the colors in sky and land in a convincing way.

  1. Love your use of neutrals here. Lovely.

  2. I agree with Sudan, and the clouds and reflections in the water against the grass give such a feeling of restfulness.
