Laurel Daniel

by Sarah Judson January 09, 2012

Artist, teacher and Daily Painter Laurel Daniel paints full-time at the Austin Museum of Art and is a member (and past president) of Plein Air Austin. The paintings shown here are plein air works which are 12"x12" and 16"x12". "Plein air painting is a huge part of my process - it feeds, motivates, and is the source for studio work. It is an excuse to be outside, experiencing nature firsthand. The whole process is irresistible to me." Her blog contains helpful commentary,  demos and also  tips about using refined linseed oil as both a medium and brush cleaner. We like what she says about small studies being like "postcards to yourself," an aid to memory, especially when traveling.
