Descanso Sunset Path – California Plein Air Painting

August 13th, 2009

Descanso Sunset Path
8 x 10
oil on canvas on birch panel
Plein air painting
SOLD

This evening there was strong color in the sky because of some brush fires in the area. When that happens it means spectacular sunsets. I enjoyed painting in the warm glow, while listening to the rehearsal of the Pasadena Pops, which will be playing tomorrow night.

If you are familiar with Descanso, this is the path where tulips are usually planted in the spring. It goes by the little train station, which is just to the right. Because the light was going fast this is a little looser than some of my garden paintings. I like the effect.

  2. Love the saturated colors in this. Fires are scary, there is such a drought at home we are worried about our area again this year.

  3. It’s glowing in the light. Yeah, it’s fire season again. Hope it doesn’t get too bad.
