Santa Barbara California coast purple and yellow impressionism by Erin Hanson

Saffron Coast



26 x 36 in



Contact Gallery

Hues of purple fade into saffron yellow in this painting of southern California's coastline. Soft stretches of sand curve into a bay of water that reflects the sunset glow above. Each brush stroke is loose and impressionistic, capturing the quickly-changing light of the scene.

"Saffron Coast" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
