Moonstone Beach Surf – Central Coast Cambria Oil Painting – with video – Karen Winters, artist

January 5th, 2011

Moonstone Beach Surf
Cambria, California
11 x 14 oil on linen panel

SOLD

This was painted last April (2010) during a California Art Club paintout. The rain came down where we were painting at San Luis Obispo Land Conservancy sites, so some of us headed for the coast nearby. It was incredibly cold and windy, but I had a really good time

This is a video my husband shot and edited – some highlights of me painting there. Please let me know if for any reason it doesn’t play for you. It is hosted on the Facebook server, not YouTube.

  1. Such fun to see you painting out by the beach, Karen. A beautiful video By Glenn…those swooping birds…and the music just fit. Love those clouds.

  2. Karen…
    Terrific video.. Gorgeous painting.
    What a terrific memorial to the plein air life. You and your husband sort of lead an idyllic existance, don’t you?
    The painting in the video looks a little different than the one posted above. Was it the same one???
    Thanks for sharing!!

  3. It’s exactly the same painting. In fact I didn’t touch it after leaving the beach. Perhaps the angle that it was shot from makes it look a bit different.
    We are grateful that in recent years we have so many opportunities to travel where we can both do what we like best me: paint … him:shoot video.

  4. I looked at it and realized that the last shot Glenn used was not the last shot of the painting on the beach. Also, the beach painting is shot under bright outdoor light, at an angle, and the finished painting is shot straight on under balanced indoor light, as it would look in someone’s home, not outdoor under bluish sky light.

  5. The painting is beautiful. I very much enjoyed the video and I love the name Moonstone Beach!

  6. What a great video! Makes me want to pack up my brushes and paints and head out. Your ocean scene is absolutely gorgeous.

  7. You captired this area better than any other painting I’ve seen. I just LOVE that area, coming from Fresno.

  8. Thank you, Matt, I just love to paint there. Did you get a chance to see the video, too?

  9. I saw the video and loved it. It’s such a peaceful place. There is some Tide pools that would be cool to paint in the cambria. Have you ever been in that part? We found it by accident. I could spend years in that area and always find something new. Last time we visited the area, we toured the grounds of the Piedras Blancas Light House. That was a really interesting experience
