Photo taken at: Ventura Botanical Gardens
3rd painting on site overlooking Ventura. It’s the same view as the other two but detailed of the trees. Or my impression of it anyways. This one was the quickest as I was trying to catch a 20 minute period of light at sunset. I’m happiest with this one out of the bunch as I feel it best captures the mood and feeling of the moment. Lesson learned: Do 3 sketches of the location, and throw away the first
Original oil painting on wood panel.
This painting was painted en plein air on location. The inspiration is taken from specific moment and was not touched again in the studio. After the paint has dried it’s then varnished with Gamvar varnish for archival purposes.
