San Diego Sunset

Sunset in San Diego

San Diego Sunset

Sunset in Hillcrest – For Sale

The coastal clouds rolled in at nightfall and turned pink with the city lights. This is from a series of plein air night paintings I did last year. Despite the winter chill (low 60s, brr!), it’s easy to get into night paintings this time of year, when it’s just about fully dark around 5.

U-Heights Nocturne

U Heights Nocturne

This is from a series of night and twilight paintings I did in Hillcrest and University Heights earlier in the year. This vacant lot once was home to a BevMo, which burned down. There’s a construction sign with an elevation drawing of a new building, so I guess something new is coming soon in this spot.

Sold, but here’s a link to other San Diego paintings in my Etsy shop.

Santa Barbara Evening Palms Landscape

Santa Barbara California Landscape Painting Original Fine Art

Evening light on Santa Barbara’s incredible mountains, seen from a side street off State Street.

I was amazed by the atmospheric light effects on these mountains.

I thought I’d never seen light like this anywhere else, and then we saw the same effect in a Monet painting of the Italian riviera in the Santa Barbara art museum.

Pink Sky Palm Trees – Landscape Painting

Palm Trees in Mission Valley, San Diego, California

Pink Sky Palm Trees – California Landscape Painting

Landscape painting of 3 palm trees in silhouette against a night sky turned glowing pink from the lights of the stadium reflecting against the marine layer rolling in off the Pacific. This painting is from memory, trying to capture the colors of the evening landscape driving down towards Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley, San Diego, California. When I got home, I did a study in pastels, and completed the oil painting the next day.
