Daryl painted en plein air this week in Olowalu, Lahaina. He captured the beautiful glowing sunset! En plein air is a french expression used in the art world to describe the act of painting outdoors -Daryl's favorite way to paint. It's an inspiring experience watching Daryl paint, I don't know how he does it, he's able to capture the essence of the beauty around him.
Daryl Millard painting en plein air in Olowalu, Lahaina.
"For anyone who loves Hawaii, Daryl Millard's paintings in what I call a classic vintage style are a wonderful way to bring that old-time laid-back feeling home. His paintings settle my mind and quiet my spirit. They are truly unique. If you are visiting Maui you won't regret taking some time in Lahaina to see this gallery. Daryl and Vanessa do their own framing and those frames are an art unto themselves enhancing the feel and theme of each painting. I met Daryl many years ago when he had a studio in Solana Beach, California. For you Southern Californians, I urge you to check out Daryl's work in scenes from La Jolla and Torrey Pines -- these are rare gems from the San Diego County coastline." Gary Ward
