"Eaton Canyon" ©


Eaton Canyon is a classic Southern California location for painting. This Sycamore dressed in it's fall glory greets every visitor as you head up to the waterfall.

Oil on Canvas, 18" X 24"







The response to the process images was so positive I thought a bit of brush work might be interesting too, since you can't see the work in the full view of the painting.


This little photo is a close up of part of the mountain.

















Here is a bit of the sky.














Finally a bit of the tree. I'll keep working on the painting over the next several days. I have found it's of benefit to set the painting where I can pass it often during the day, spotting details that need adjustment at a glance.

Gosh... I think the close ups showing your brushwork are even more beautiful than the painting... although that is great too!

Wow, beautiful painting with perfect pitch tone of the canyons around So Cal, and those little close ups are gems! So much color and lovely mark-making in varied directions. Wonderful!

Thank you Belinda and Marian. You lovely artists are SO encouraging. Marian, glad your painting trip to the Channel Islands was so successful and your home safe. Belinda, your rocking on your press, love all the new work flying off! See you this weekend at the Studio City Art Fair.
