BEACH LUPINE-SAN LUIS DUNES, Oil Painting by Kathy O'Leary

Painting with the California Art Club this past Spring at San Luis Obispo's preserved lands, we traveled to some dune areas to paint. The sky was overcast, threatening rain. Whereas, a bright sunny day would have washed out the soft colors, the cloudy skies provided a beautiful subtle light that allowed the delicate violets and pale gray greens of the Beach Lupine and muted colors of the other early blooming coastal plants to come through. This painting measures 8 x 10 and is done on cnvas covered panel. SOLD
