I painted on the beach today and it was refreshing! Here are 8×8 daily paintings from Lincoln Beach. Number 3 was painted plein air and the others were painted at my campsite.

Coastal Drama Cannon Beach

 SOLD Coastal Drama Cannon Beach. © Pam Van Londen 2013. Oil on 8×8-inch Claybord panel. Unframed. This new painting is a remake of an older painting, which I could not stand to look at anymore. This version has more drama and is much more fun to look at. The sand from the original plein air […]

Coastal Drama 3

Purchase with PayPal. $60. Coastal Drama 3. © Pam Van Londen 2013. Oil on 8×8-inch Claybord. A few years ago I did some plein air painting at Cannon Beach. Most of those panels sold. One did not, so I’ve revised it…and I like it so much better. Here is the revision. The paint ought to […]

Klamath River Serenity

$64 Purchase via Etsy© Pam Van Londen 2010, Klamath River 4, 12×9 acrylic on claybord In the early morning beside the Klamath River, you might spot a bear across the way, or a blanket of flog seeping in and out with the tide, or a buzzard looking for fishing scraps.

Virtual Paintout is New Zealand

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Opito Bay Road, Kerikeri, New Zealand, 8×8 oil on claybord June’s Virtual Paintout Challenge is New Zealand. I found a lonely road in Kerikeri that had my favorite elements: grass, highway, trees, and water. This one is using a bit of sgraffito to add interest.

Clear Lake is Feb’s Painting Challenge

$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Clear Lake 4, oil on 8×8-inch archival Claybord, unframed. Clear Lake is one of my favorite spots in Oregon. You can fish in quiet, camp, and eat a burger if necessary. The water is clear, of course, and provides colorful reflections for painting. The Monthly Painting Challenge for February […]

Crows at the Beach 11

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crows on the Beach 11, 8×8 oil on claybord Ah to while away the hours watching birds at the beach…that is a vacation. And if you can’t be on vacation, paint the scene to allow you to go there when you must just rely on your imagination.

Mary’s Peak 8 painted
en plein air

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Mary’s Peak 8, 8×8 oil on claybord I enjoyed another evening of painting outdoors last night. We settled into some property south of Corvallis where we could view the sun setting over Mary’s Peak. The wheat fields provided a gold texture against the misty blue backdrop of hills and […]

Crow at the Beach 10

$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crow at the Beach 10, oil on 8×8-inch archival Claybord panel; unframed. Crow has something to say, either, “Hey, painter, move along; this is my log,” or “there is a scrap of food here and it is mine!” I’m continuing with the same technique I’ve been using for months […]

Crow at the Beach 9

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crow at the Beach 9, 8×8 oil on claybord Nine of the 14 paintings of crows I’ve done this year have new homes. I must be on a roll. Most crows do not live a year. But some live to year 14. Learn more about them from Cornell Ornithologist Kevin […]

Farrington Hwy, Kapolei, Hawaii

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Farrington Hwy Kapolei, Hawaii, 8×8 oil on clayboard This image was painted for the Virtual Paintout. I found some lovely footage from Google to work from. Instead of my usual Alizarin Crimson underpainting, I used Cerulean Blue. For the clouds, I added iridescent white. I refrained from overworking anything here; […]

Crows on the Beach 7

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2010, Crows at the Beach 7, 8×8 oil on clayboard I’ve sold the other two of this composition, so felt compelled to paint it again. I find painting ripples a challenge to render and they are quite different every time I do them. When painted on Claybord, it is tougher […]

Crows at the Beach 3

SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2009, Crows at the Beach 3, oil on 8×8 gessobord. I sold the second Crows on the Beach this week but wasn’t quite ready to give up on the subject matter. The crows are fun to paint but I like the challenge of painting the water in various colors and […]

More coastal drama
