California Country Road – Karen Winters

California Country Road 9.5″ x 7.5″ watercolor on paper

A spontaneous sketch of an out of the way byway in California’s beautiful hills. Around the bend may be a tired old barn or a vineyard. You just never know what to expect when you go for a drive.

    Excellent sketch. That, as you undoubtedly know, would make a nice oil painting. I like the variety in the greens, including temperature, and that field of orange that really makes the sketch come alive.

    May I say that I sometimes like your watercolour sketches more than the finished oil paintings. It’s perhaps because they become more abstract.
    You are so hard-working and passionate.
