This painting was painted on location (plienair) from O’Neal park looking towards Saddle Back Mountain. I personally love the Southern California foothills, it reveals the ‘true’ nature of the area and gives me a great appreciation for Southern California. The alternate view shows my set-up and view the day I painted the painting.
My oil paintings are made from professional grade oil paints. I allow the brilliance of the colors to enhance the view and emotion of the work. The goal is to fully express the Southern California light and the feeling of the day in which it was painted.
