Marina Storage

Marina Storage, L. Daniel, 16 x 12

Last week, I made a visit back to Westlake Beach, the site of many of my small paintings in August. This scene has been in my head since my very first painting there. The play of the light and shadows stops me every time and I have stored up my observations in anticipation. I wanted to wait until it was cooler and I could take more time to really "get" all the elements. A sunny, fall day was just the ticket! :)

Beautiful light, I love the contrast between the dark and the light green of the trees.

Gorgeous painting Laurel. The light is lovely, and you are the queen of trees. Your trees always amaze me.

Love the light and strong contrasts. That little spot of teal on boat amidst the natural greenery, and the red in the distant sunlit ground nearby, create a wonderful vibrancy. The bright face of the shed and the path in the foreground pull me right through. I feel I've walked right through this little world.
