King Charles Cavalier Puppy Portrait – “Precious”

Friday, January 29th, 2010

“Precious” Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy 6 x 6 oil on canvas panel SOLD (please inquire about other animal paintings) I saw this little pup last weekend and begged the owner to let me take a picture. I always enjoy doing animal studies and the challenge of fur and dramatic lighting made it a special [...]

Pomegranate Study – Still Life by Karen Winters

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Pomegranate Study 8 x 10 oil on linen panel (commission) SOLD This pomegranate painting, a larger version of an earlier small study, was painted for a client who was looking for something bright and juicy for her dining room. I was happy to paint this larger one. Maybe one day I’ll paint it even larger [...]

California landscape oil painting – tonalist fine art – Karen Winters

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Under the California Sun 9 x 12 oil on linen panel SOLD This new painting was influenced by some studying of tonalists such as George Inness, and my continued explorations using a more monochromatic color palette in some works. Yes, I still love my saturated colors, but there are different atmospheric effects and moods that [...]

California plein air landscape painting – Eaton Canyon Waters – Karen Winters

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

Eaton Canyon Waters 9 x 12 in. oil on archival linen panel SOLD but I have more Pasadena Paintings This morning, after days of gray skies and pouring rain, we woke up to bright blue skies and snow in the San Gabriel Mountains above us. I knew the watershed of Eaton Canyon would be filled [...]

Big Sur Oil Painting – California Garrapata Beach seascape

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Garrapata Beach, Big Sur 16 x 20 oil on canvas The state park on a beautiful clear day with just a little mist hovering over the distant headlands. A look so typical of the area. I’ll bet that this location has been the scene of many marriage proposals, it’s so beautiful. Last weekend, I attended [...]

Pansy blossoms – botanical study

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Pansy Study 5 x 7 oil on canvas on panel In the winter, not a lot of flowers are blooming in Southern California. Cool season bloomers include snapdragons, iceland poppies and pansies, which are predominately purple, violet and shades of yellow, cream and white. I enjoyed painting this loose collection of forms as a study [...]

California tonal landscape oil painting – Tin Roof, Bishop

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Tin Roof, Bishop 9 x 12 oil on panel Just north of Bishop, California there is a ranching area where the barns have tin roofs that have weathered wonderfully through the years. This scene attracted me as a subject to paint, but the cool light of the afternoon I was there didn’t appeal to me [...]

California Landscape Painting – Sierra Foothills Oil Painting

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Sierra Foothills 8 x 10 oil on board This scene is from the foothills of the Sierra, approaching Yosemite from the western side. Oak covered hills and golden grasses make for a limited palette scene. Most of this was painted with ultramarine and prussian blue, yellow ochre, and small touches of alizarin to create the [...]
