Lush Lagoon Study

Lush Lagoon Study, 6 x 6, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2014

This small study helped me get the grasses and lake reflections in my mind for a larger painting of the same scene. It always helps me to play around with color and composition before jumping to a bigger canvas. I find that the small ones give me a sense of where I want to go without getting bogged down with too much detail. (The larger piece is on it's way to the Greenhouse Gallery for the Salon International 2014!)

Beautiful work! I'm a fellow Daily paintworks member and have often found myself studying your color and paint handling. You have a wonderful sense of light and atmosphere.

I'm looking forward to seeing more!
