Dawn's Light, young palm tree
5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
I painted this alla prima, all in one session. Wet-in-wet, fast and loose . . . so fun to do. Very impressionistic. I saw this little palm tree glowing in the early morning sun, the shadows where intensified by the light. It was so beautiful to me. It reminds me of that feeling when you are out camping and it is hard to make things out with all the shadows, then the sun eats away at the darkness and even seems to bite through some of the objects in its path.
The first Daily Painters book is out! MY ART is featured in the middle.
I am so excited, I am in NEW BOOK THAT HAS JUST BEEN PUBLISHED!
