September 4..........Rose Canyon Evolving

Oil on canvas board 12x16 in
While still living in San Diego I did the below block-in en plein air of Rose Canyon.  I did not have time to finish or to go back, and yesterday with no reference to look at I decided to work on it.  There's little logic existing here, but it was fun to paint/play. 


  1. the block in was quite nice on its own, but the colors in the finished product are lovely. you captured the sun and shade wonderfully

  2. Thank you, Nancy, you are very kind!

  3. Love how you have captured the sun :)
