Traditional Fine Art Oil Painting of Southern California's El Matador State Beach in Malibu is a classic example of En Plein Air artwork created by Elena Roché. This painting comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, important for future appraisal.

TITLE: "Hazy Morning, El Matador Beach, study"
MEDIUM: Oil on canvas mounted on board
SIZE unframed: 8" x 16"
FIT: ready-made and custom frames

ABOUT THIS PAINTING: In this small plein air painting I portrayed a hazy morning view of the cliffs at El Matador State Beach in Malibu, California. One of my favorite beaches to paint, El Matador keeps a traditional plein air artist occupied year round. The so called June-gloom haze tunes down the colors giving a soft gray hue to everything in this scene. The sun is just starting to break through the overcast clouds adding a soft glow and highlights to the cliffs and rocks. A barely visible strip of land near horizon is the famous Point Dume of Malibu.

FRAMING: This painting comes without a frame, not ready to hang. A traditional Champagne-Gold plein air style frame in AS IS condition is available for an additional $50. Let me know if you would like to buy this painting framed and I will send you a second invoice for this frame.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Whether en plein air or in my art studio, I capture the grand Southern California landscape and coast in my original oil paintings. Residing on the outskirts of greater Los Angeles in the countryside of Topanga Canyon, I paint little known local natural treasures in the Santa Monica Mountains, as well as famous and popular beaches and cliffs form Malibu to Santa Monica. Gracefully simplified in brushwork and color I convey the feeling of vastness of Southern California landscape. My fresh palette and simple brushstrokes are the results of my traditional academic training in Russia and years of plein air painting in Southern California.
