Avalon Harbor Catalina Painting – Taking the High Road

August 29th, 2010

“Avalon Harbor – Taking the High Road”
9 x 12 pastel painting
Avalon Harbor, Catalina Island

(Available at Segil Fine Art beginning August 28 for the “Colors of Catalina” Group Show)

A high road winds up, up, up around Avalon Harbor. At every turn, stately eucalyptus trees provide foreground interest for the tranquil scene below. I have been enjoying doing some pastel paintings along with my usual oils. This one was painted on archival museum board and framed like an oil painting using anti-reflective museum glass. I used to mat my pastels, but I haven’t done that for my most recent projects.

  1. Very nice, I love how the trees reach up and into the center lifting the eye. Nice composition.
