Early Morning at Big Sur painted by Alana Knuff is a commissioned piece. The rising sun lights up the ocean and the surf rushing to the rugged coast. Colors are mostly blue and green.

Welcome to Alana Knuff Fine Art

One of Alana’s favorite subjects is marine art.  A commissioned piece measuring 42 x 36, “Early Morning Near Big Sur” captures the rising sun lighting the surf as it bumps into the California coast.  The rugged land casts deep shadows on what is a very clear day in early spring.

“In April I traveled to the Carmel/Big Sur area and did some plein air pieces.  The days were clear and cool.  Morning gave the best light.  Colors seem to jump forward and my brush couldn’t move fast enough.  This piece was done in my studio from the plein air references, photos and my visual memory.” — Alana M.
