Malibu Creek State Park Landscape Painting – California art by Karen Winters

March 19th, 2009

“Malibu Creek Afternoon Hike”
12 x 16 oil on canvas

This painting will be exhibited at the Allied Artists show at Headwaters Corner, Malibu on Sunday, March 29 – unless someone wants to purchase it before then!

More California landscapes here.

After I painted at Solstice Canyon last week, we took a hike at one of our favorite and restful state parks, Malibu Creek. This is the view after you leave the parking lot and head west into the park. I think it’s especially beautiful in the spring, when the wildflowers are starting to bloom.

I had a lot of fun using the palette knife in painting this one. Most of the time I paint with brushes. Occasionally, I’ll do a painting with only knife. On very rare occasions I’ll use both – each for what it does best. This was one of those times.

Here’s a detail of just a part of the cliff. I think it makes a nice abstract all on its own. Click to enlarge.

  3. I like the texture you get when working with a palette knife.

  4. I noticed your appreciation for Malibu Creek State Park on your blog. I am seeking your opinion for an article in the Malibu Times regarding the construction of a 7 acre RV park near the intersection of Mulholland & Cornell (Inside the park) Deadline for story is Saturday, Oct 3rd

    A blog describes the project and it is here: http://www.savethemeadow.blogspot.com/

    Thank You

  5. Karen,
    Hope you are well. We outgrew the blog and now have a website. Thanks for helping to start the campaign. We have now been endorsed by Nancy Reynolds, a long time friend of President and Mrs. Reagan.
