A small town along the Pacific coast south of San Francisco. Catherine McCargar captures the atmosphere of coastal land and sky. The structure is a declining old stage stop that still stands tentatively in the little town of San Gregorio. The artist used both transparent watercolor and gouache over gesso to create the fluid and rustic results.

Getting to Know Catherine

Although originally from the East Coast, Catherine McCargar has been a Californian for many years. Her representative impressionism reflects the California landscape and her world travels. Throughout her portfolio, she creatively plays with her color palette, giving each work her distinct style. She paints regularly in her home studio, and has been a selected member of the San Francisco-based Jade Fon Painters group for over a decade. Through this, she has gained experience painting outside on location in all sorts of weather together with a group of accomplished artists. The experiences, observations, and critiques of that plein air group strongly influence her work today.
