Oil painting by Nora Dewey


My favorite parts of this painting are the various grays showing in the cliff, and the shadowy water below. Since this was a bigger painting than my usual, I ended up using a palette knife to spread the layers of paint. Fun!


This painting is FRAMED.
The size of the painting NOT including the frame is 18 x 24

  • I have lived in North County all of my life, and traveled up and down California. The California coast is my favorite place, and inspires me with its beautiful views and gentle light. Painting allows me to express this love, and I hope viewers will sense a similar emotion when viewing my work. 
    I paint mostly from photographs, as a camera best captures quickly changing scenes and light. Occasionally I will paint "en plein air", which sharpens my ability to accurately see color and helps me to concentrate on basic shapes and composition.
