Painting California

This show features all scenes of California and are a mix of plein air paintings, studio paintings and plein air paintings touched up in the studio. I've been working hard this past month and a half to produce these paintings. Please enjoy.

 "Moonscape" 15x30 in. oil on linen board.

 "Carquinez Gold" 16x20 in. oil on linen board.

 "Sunbaked" 18x24 in. oil on linen board.
See the little figures? If you want to get a good gander at them, and much better sense of the textures in this painting, go over to my website and check out a high-res photo.

 "A Kiss Of Seabreeze" 18x18 in. oil on linen board.
Location: Timber Cove.

"Little Sur" 9x10 in. oil on linen board.

 "Among The Tourists" 12x16 in. oil on linen board.
This painting was done amongst hundreds of painters set up along the wharf. I decided to keep it vignetted, as the brushwork in the initial block-in was appealing enough. I used a plastic putty knife as a straight-edge to do the architecture, a tip learned from Joseph McGurl. This was also a rare instance of using Phtalo Blue on my palette. Can be a fun color, but man is it overpowering.

 "Chalk Hill Vista" 12x16 in. oil on linen board.
Done at the Chalk Hill Residency in Healdsburg with the North Bay Plein Air Painters meetup group.

"Clouded Beauty" 11x14 oil on linen board.
This was done alongside all the painters at the Plein Air Convention. Michael Orwick Arts was painting next to me. I don't mind grey days like this, in fact, I like trying to find the color within the seeming grays.

 "Misty Overlook" 4x6in oil on linen board. SOLD
This is life-size. I just love painting atmospheric distance, and I feel like I live in one of the best places ever for it. This sold immediately once I brought it into the gallery.

 "Tomales Peace" 5x7 in. oil on linen mounted on board. 
Played with not using Ultramarine Blue at all in this painting. It results in a warmer painting overall.

The show opens this Sunday, May 4th. 2014.
