California poppy wildflower landscape oil painting – Golden Hills of Springtime – by Karen Winters

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

“Golden Hills of Springtime” 6 x 8 oil painting study on linen panel See more of my California wildflower paintings here The foothills of the Sierra, when the weather is right, are draped in magical hues of gold, green, violet, white and orange. Amazingly, all at once. This living tapestry extends throughout the range, creating [...]

Cloud study – California impressionist oil painting

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

Cloud study 6 x 8 oil on gessoed wood We’ve had some unusual storm activity in the past week, including some huge thunderheads that appeared in the distance last night. As the sunset glow touched them, I tried to memorize the colors and immediately came indoors to get down a quick impression. When I was [...]

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 [...]

Mountain Sketch – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Friday, May 9th, 2008

“Mountain Sketch” approx 8.5 x 11 watercolor Well, I’m in countdown mode again – looking forward to the Sierra Madre Art Fair benefitting Friends of the Sierra Madre Library in (where else?) beautiful Sierra Madre, California, just a bit northeast of Pasadena. So I’ll be posting some smaller sketches and paintings this week as I [...]

Poppy Patch – Pasadena – Karen Winters Daily Painting

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

“Return to the Poppy Patch” 9 x 12 watercolor SOLD It’s another walk around the Arlington street poppy garden, but this time in a more decorative, somewhat abstract mood. I abandoned any attempt to be realistic and considered the landscape as a decorative tapestry, with different colors and textures woven through. With some modifications, this [...]

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 [...]

Foo Dog

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

While I work on some large paintings, here’s a small watercolor sketch of a lion dog, also known as a foo dog. It is one of two guardians of the new Chinese garden, opening very soon at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. According to

­ A Life Drawing

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

Female portrait – for practice – charcoal on newsprint One of my goals this year was to take a life drawing class – working from a live model. I’ve drawn from models on some other occasions but i was never close enough to get a good look at the head, and the models were nude [...]

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 [...]

A distant view – daily painting

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

“A distant view” – watercolor sketch on paper The cold and flu season has left me a sniffling, coughing, Vicks-laden mess, so I’m trying to not exacerbate the situation by inhaling copious quantities of odorless mineral spirits without a window open for ventilation. (It’s cold outside.) So instead, I’m keeping warm, drinking lots of tea [...]
