Watercolor of the day ~ Cannery Row Shack

Cannery Row Shack ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

Once on a trip to Monterey on the northern California coast, I came upon a small historic shack in the area called Cannery Row, which John Steinbeck made famous in his classic novel. I used that shack as the basis for this watercolor, although I played a bit with the setting and color palette.

I originally painted this piece in the year 2020 and made further changes to it later in 2022.

This idyllic scene comes from the shores of Oaxaca on Mexico’s wild but beautiful southwest coast. The jungle begins not far from where I found this surreal windowed wall. You can see it encroaching on the stuccoed structure, reaching to reclaim the ocean vista it once commanded all alone.

Bahía de Tangolunda ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

I was visiting the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico when I painted this colorful vista of Tangolunda Bay on the Pacific Ocean. I’ll give credit to the hot Mexican sun, which dried my paints so fast that I opted for a loose, impressionist style.

This is my attempt to evoke the spirit and style of Van Gogh’s vivid landscapes in a watercolor painting. It’s a countryside scene from a colorful and crooked land of impossible purple fields and bright orange skies where Vincent’s farmhouse welcomes your visit.
