Sierra Storm – Sierra Nevada Oil Painting – California Landscape Painter Karen Winters

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Sierra Storm 12 x 16 inches Oil on linen panel SOLD More Sierra Nevada paintings here In the fall, storms begin to gather over the Sierra, offering dramatic lighting effects. This storm was breezing up and brought two days of downpour in its wake. We outran it and came back to paint another day. The [...]

Point Lobos – Monterey Peninsula

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Pt. Lobos Rocks 9 x 12 acrylic on paper We’ve been having a great time seeing some of the natural beauty of Northern California, and this is one of my recent studies from a few days ago at Point Lobos. I’m updating from the road so I don’t have quite as much time for blogging [...]

A plein air study – granite rock group

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Sketchbook, rock study From time to time I’ve mentioned that I keep an industrial-strength watercolor sketchbook with nature studies of trees, geology, animals (occasionally) and other features of the natural world. Because the focus of this blog has changed to reflect my evolution into a full-time painter, I have stopped posting those studies. But recently [...]

Arroyo Seco Path – California watercolor sketch

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Arroyo Seco Path 7″ x 5.5″ watercolor sketch For more information about my work, please write One of the most frequent questions I get about my paintings is whether they are all done plein air style (no) and, if not, what I use for reference. Although I do use photos to catch specific details of [...]

Poppy Garden – sketchbook watercolor

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

“Poppy Garden” – approx 9 x 12 watercolor Tuesday afternoon I had the opportunity to join my friend Wendee for some sketching and painting in a nearby garden that is filled with billows of California poppies. Do you detect a seasonal theme here? I didn’t have time for a big painting but I wanted to [...]

A Spring Walk – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

A Spring Walk – 9 x 12 – watercolor sketch This one is a little bit from real life, and a little bit from imagination. I embellished the wildflower strewn meadows just a tad beyond reality, but if you don’t tell, I won’t. Ah, springtime. Our peach tree is in bloom, magnolias are covered with [...]

Peppertree Road – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Monday, January 14th, 2008

Peppertree Road – watercolor sketch Here’s another watercolor vignette from my sketchbook while I’m working on another large oil seascape. (To be posted as soon as it’s done.) My cold/flu bug is gone (at least enough) that I can contemplate painting in oils again, and so I am. This little sketch was derived from color [...]

No Mail Today – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

No Mail Today – 8 x 6.25 – watercolor sketch I painted this little vignette this morning as a way to get some art practice no matter what the rest of the day would include (chores, an art association meeting and demo, car-shopping, housework, etc.) I’m very disciplined about making sure that I paint daily [...]

San Pasqual Stables – South Pasadena – Arroyo Seco

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

“San Pasqual Stables in the Morning” 9 x 12 – oil SOLD This morning I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the San Pasqual Stables in South Pasadena, California for a group paintout. The location was challenging because I don’t frequently do architectural subjects, and morning light is hard to catch because it changes so [...]

“Napa Purple House – sketchbook entry – 4″ x 6″ – watercolor and felt tip pen – orig. not for sale – print available This weekend we made the trek to the SF Bay area to visit with our daughter before she heads back to business school in the fall. We had a great time [...]
