Shadow Shimmer

Shadow Shimmer, L. Daniel, 6 x 8
SOLD


Last Thursday, Plein Air Austin met up to paint in the country. My goal for the day was to use thick, juicy paint; and the simple shapes of this shed and its shadows were a perfect subject for that goal. I am enjoying pushing myself in the area of paint application... if you click on the image, you will be able to see the thick paint up close. More of this experimentation will be showing up in my next few posts. :)

I looked at this and thought: "mm, juicy!" BEFORE reading any of your text. :)

Really pretty composition and the pretty shadows just sing. Love the juicy paint and am working on that too. I like it:)

Very nice Laurel! I don't put enough paint on my canvas usually so this is something I need to work on too. Beautiful shadows!

You certainly accomplished using more paint! I love this. It feels so rich and "painterly". Your strokes are so clean and direct.
