Remembering the Light – California Central Coast eucalyptus landscape oil painting, plein air style

Remembering the Light
California Central Coast eucalyptus sunset oil painting
16 x 20 inches, oil on canvas

There’s a place I like to go traveling up highway 101, where the eucalyptus trees grow so gracefully, sculpted by ocean breezes. No matter the time of day, the light seems to do amazing things with these trees. This one, in particular, catches my imagination with every visit.

    Gorgeous color palette I really like this painting Karen. I surfed up and down the California coast for nearly a decade and when I spotted this it made me smile. Now that I’m landlocked in the Midwest its glimpses of light and color that bring me back. Your palette colors are reminiscent of masters in the past and your brush strokes are simple and communicate a lot….a full sentence with one word. Lovely work.
    Much Aloha
