In this oil painting, I was trying to create the impression of the full spectrum of colors seen on a hazy day. In this interpretation of the Islands of Lake Lanier on a very sunny, humid and hazy morning, I utilized the techniques of the impressionists including the application of oil painting strokes in different directions. I also created the illusion of recessional planes by applying duller and lighter colors in the background and brighter, high-contrast colors in the foreground of the scene. I studied the works of Monet and Renoir to learn their techniques to represent light, chroma, and temperature.
