Santa Barbara Paintings Santa Barbara Mission Old Mission with Pepper Trees

”Old Mission Santa Barbara with Pepper Trees”   16“ x 20“
Made during the Santa Barbara painting workshop by Kathleen Elsey

I began this painting as a demonstration for my students in the Santa Barbara Painting Workshop. It was a foggy misty day. I worked for a couple of hours, then went back a few days later when the sun was shining. I was able to get the sunshine in my colors. I love the red roses in the rose garden. I wanted to capture the smell of the roses, the tolling of the bells, the singing birds and the gentle breeze flowing through the pepper trees.
