Pulp Mill on Humboldt Bay painting by Andrew Daniel

Pulp Mill on Humboldt Bay by Andrew Daniel
oil on wood 5" x 7"(13cm x 18cm)

It seems like, whenever I go to the Arcata Marsh to paint, my first compulsion is to look out across the bay to the pulp mill and the bridges. The forms seem as if they were shaped out of fog. Some day I will do a larger piece. Here is a study I made of the scene.

Allen Marsh painting by Andrew Daniel

Allen Marsh oil painting on wood 5"x7"(13cm x 18cm)
By Andrew Daniel

I had just a short bit of time to finish this little piece. It was surprising how much could come through in the rush. Painting quickly often works out well for me, but it is difficult, because there is always a temptation to over refine things and get meticulous. This is one of the first times that I tried to get the distant houses in the background. It's a fine line to walk, not putting in too much detail back there...

Farm with Mustard Field paintings by Andrew Daniel

Farm with Mustard Flowers
Oil in Wood 8" x 8" (20cm x 20cm)

Field of Mustard Flowers
Oil on Wood 5" x7" (13cm x 18cm)

I have been interested in this mustard field every year as I walk by it. This year I was able to get out and paint it a couple of times. I hope to get out there more and maybe do a larger piece. I tend to be attracted to yellows, I guess....
