Big Sur California Coastline
Bob and Nadine Johnston
Painting - Acrylic On Masonite
Back in 1970,we took our first Motorcycle ride along the Big Sur Coast of California, and feel in love with this ride. Have been going to the area to camp and hike the mountains ever since. Have taken thousands of photos, and Nadine had painted many scenes from them. It can take months to create a painting like this one. From time to time she will take it out, work on it for a day or two, then work on others to give her a break... later going back to it.
By painting with acrylics, you can go over and over, and over an area until satisfied. Acrylic dries so fast in CA, its almost totally dry to the dry climate in minutes. It takes a lot of patience to do this, at times Nadine has worked on a painting for a year, bit by bit until satisfied.
Since then Nadine has painted many different areas along the coast, for many decades all she did was seascapes and then switched to animals. In spite of how good her animals are, many times wish Nadine would go back and do seascapes again.
