Pasadena afternoon – Cityscape urban oil impressionist oil painting – Karen Winters

El Molino Afternoon
11 x 14 oil on board
SOLD to a collector from Pasadena

Strong sunlight streamed through the alley just south of the Pasadena Playhouse in the Playhouse District.
I enjoy the feeling of painting on board. Although it lacks the “spring” of stretched canvas, the paint glides on smoothly and can be pushed around in different ways.

Thanks for all the comments left here in support of my 5 years in blogging. Connecting with others through Facebook is another new and interesting direction that promises to bring other opportunities to be creative and connect with other creative people. I’m really enjoying it a lot. It’s not just for college kids, anymore! There are groups based around common interests (like art) as well as other relaxing activities like playing Scrabble and organizing get togethers. So much fun!

    Lovely warm colours and shapes in this paintingl. Streetscapes are interesting because you can play about with the verticals and horizontals.

    I like this one, a lot…the reflected light, the shadows, the activity…
