Fallbrook Landscape Oil Painting – Morning Breeze – by Karen Winters

Morning Breeze (Fallbrook, California)
16 x 12″
oil on canvas

As the week progressed in Fallbrook, the weather cooled and large clouds would appear every morning. This painting, inspired by my visit there, depicts a view looking eastward across a small creek that helped irrigate the ranch where we were painting. Clouds are among my favorite subjects to paint and in this case they are the primary interest.

If this painting is dry, I might be bringing it to the Montrose Art Walk this Saturday on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose. I can’t promise, because it may not be dry enough. But on the other hand, at a plein air event, the patrons buy paintings at the end of a QuickDraw event, and they are soaking wet, painted just an hour before. So I might very well bring this one along.

    If it can travel safely, do take it along, Karen– though I cannot imagine how you could do that…I love your clouds and water reflections and that feeling of space.

    Karen, this one is my favorite so far from your week at the workshop with Elizabeth. It sounds like a terrific week and I am so glad you went. Wish I could have been in your pocket. Good luck this weekend at Montrose!

    The huge cloud and the reflection of it on the water is just so perfect!
