New paintings of San Clemente California by Jen Beaudet Zondervan

 I'm working on loosening up...once again. I want my paintings to be more fresh and clean. I love working with a palette knife, but sometimes I get a little too much texture.  The tree painting is inspired from a walk in Rancho San Clemente. It was during quarantine and everything was so amazingly beautiful that day. I think it was still March.  8x10 $175 11x14 $225 This one is not finished but you can see where it's going. It's San Clemente, California at my favorite beach called Calafia. I still have to add the railroad crossing in this one. I thought about not adding it but anyone that knows the area might wonder. I think this spot is memorable because of the palm trees lined up. I love it because of all the beautiful Bougainvillea everywhere. It's amazing how it blooms all year round (or at least it seems to). Anyway, I'm still working on it and may add some clouds.  Both will be available in my etsy shop soon but feel free to contact me if you're interested

In my own backyard...


My favorite color!




It really is a beautiful world. Sometimes you only have to look in your own backyard.



I didn't even touch these rose bushes and they have so many buds and flowers; it's amazing!



beautiful!


outside my window


I'm not sure what kind of tree this is but it's beautiful and make a great pattern. I took this
photo through a screen but it still came out ok.

So I really don't have to fly to Hawaii for inspiration...it's all around me!
But I did paint this one yesterday...


Kapalua watercolor sketch


I wasn't going to post this because I really didn't put too much planning into this and now I notice the photo is blurry and a little darker than the original. I decided to go ahead and share it with you though because it's part of my creative process and I ended up liking it. Do you think it looks funny with just one palm tree? Maybe...Any way it really is fun to just let it flow with no planning and no care.
I'm going to be posting more photos from Maui but had to share this wonderful beauty around me. I do live in a very gorgeous place...I just wish it were a little warmer.

Beautiful roses and tree, and beach painting. Nice to see your creative process.
Your garden, like your watercolor, is beautiful!

XO,

Lots to love in your painting. The green/blue of the water, warm horizon of the sky, the angle of the solitary palm tree and the flowers in the shadows. Brings back happy memories. Thank you
