Tree Veil

Tree Veil, 8 x 6, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2014
SOLD

The afternoon glow through these trees was impossible for me to pass up. The silhouetted tree trunks provided a perfect juxtaposition for the streaming light behind the veil of foliage, and it was quite striking. The tricky part was hanging on to the darks in the silhouette… they were so necessary to establish the right drama and contrast.

You get an A+ for hanging on to the darks, while translating that light into an illuminated vision. Fabulous....

The orange highlight makes it! Love seeing your paintings here most mornings. Great inspiration to start an art day!

This is so lovely. I am drawn to similar moments of glorious light...though they usually elude me as I paint them! Beautifully captured Laurel.
