Demo at Anderson Gallery

Abandoned Dock - Demo painting, L. Daniel, 12 x 16
On Saturday I did the painting above in a live demonstration at Anderson Fine Art Gallery, my gallery here on St. Simons Island. I worked from the plein air study below, sharing my overall thinking about color, composition and process. My audience was encouraging and many of the folks were painters themselves. I really enjoyed their thoughtful questions and input (thanks to all of you who came!!!) .

Great job, Laurel. I can't imagine those at the demo being anything but encouraging. Beautiful work, as usual.

Wish I could have been there but thank goodness for the internet we get to share in it a wee bit! I love the paintings you're doing there.
