Arlene Daniel

by Sarah Judson December 02, 2013

Award-winning North Carolina artist Arlene Daniel uses both oils and pastels to paint plein air, in studio and figurative paintings. "I love painting in plein air. Being on location with the sites, smells and sounds of nature is wonderful. Nature is the best teacher; no camera can capture all the subtle colors and color harmonies that our eyes can see. After painting in plein air you can bring that color sense into your studio work." The images shown here are plein air oils, from 6"x6" (Day at the Horse Barn, above) to 10"x8" (Waterfall at Hanging Rock State Park (right). Also shown is Banner Elk, NC (below, 8"x6") She is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists, Women Painters of the Southeast, and many other art organizations. "I am always trying to challenge myself and work diligently in order to become a more masterful painter. As our skills grow, our standards of excellence grow with them, so our lifetime quest for excellence continues."
