St. Francis of Assisi statue, Mission San Juan Bautista

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

“St. Francis of Assisi statue” 14 x 11 inches Oil on canvas At a recent visit to California Mission San Juan Bautista, I saw this small statue in the inner garden area and thought it would be interesting to paint. The late afternoon sunlight made the weathered granite glow. I don’t know how old the [...]

Sweet Pea Springtime (Cottage garden, Pasadena, California) 14 x 11 inches Oil painting on canvas I’ve been thinking about painting this subject for several years, since my husband and I were out on a walk in Pasadena and we came upon a scene of a woman cutting sweet peas along the cottage garden path leading [...]

Victorian Lady – Figurative Oil Painting

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Victorian Lady 9 x 12 oil Along with my landscape painting, I’m getting interested in figurative work, and occasionally make time to paint from a live model as I did this last weekend at Randy Higbee’s studio in Costa Mesa. The assembled painters had the opportunity to paint this lovely woman, Toni, wearing one of [...]

Hispanic Man – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Hispanic Man – 8 x 10″ oil on canvas No, I am not putting landscape painting aside; I will continue with it as always, but I am interested in doing some portrait painting in oil, which has an entirely different feel and way of working than portraiture in watercolor. This was painted in one session, [...]

­ Minerva Getty

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Minerva – 9 x 12 graphite drawing on pastel paper – after Nollekens Yesterday I had the opportunity to return to the Hillside Getty in Sepulveda Pass for a little drawing practice. I just had time for two drawings this time – This first was this Minerva, the Roman equivalent of Athena, goddess of war. [...]

Monday, March 12th, 2007

“As the Parade Passed By” – 12′ x 15″ watercolor on paper. VIVA Gallery – NWS all member show Last week, I got some very good news that I’d like to share with you. If you’ve been following this blog for the last year or so you can imagine how much this “first time” means [...]

Bronze Nude – Getty

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

Torso after Maillol – 9 x 12 charcoal on toned paper In the sculpture garden of the West Pavilion are several Maillol bronze nudes, two of which I had time to draw. In many ways this was more challenging than the interior marble sculptures because of the dazzling bright sunlight and the dark reflectivity of [...]

Juno – Daily Drawing

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

“Juno” 9 x 12 drawing on toned paper – charcoal and white chalk Here’s another in my figure drawing expedition from Friday at the Getty. This is also based on a work by Joseph Nollekens was drawn from the same low sitting angle as yesterday’s Venus. Because this statue was much closer to me, I [...]
