Humboldt Bay Bridges

"Humboldt Bay Bridges" by Andrew Daniel
11" x 14" oil on wood panel
available through 1st Street Gallery

Today, I was out on the bay, painting the salt marsh and the bridges between Samoa and Eureka. I tried something different today. In order to get the depth and texture of the grasses, I tried using much thicker paint.

Mattole River Bend

"Mattole River Bend" by Andrew Daniel
11" x 14" (28cm x 36cm) oil on wood panel
available in my online shop

I worked on this painting over a couple mornings during a family camp out at A. W. Way campground near Petrolia. The weather was lovely, a quintessential Humboldt Weekend.  I really was attracted to the reflections in the water of the distant hill.
