Night River Scene by Florida Highwayman Johnny Daniels. A wonderful use of light is the focal point of this oil on board painting casting a long shadow over the lone female figure. Much like other examples of his work, Daniels’ paintings often display a few vibrant colors that contrast with more muted areas. Layered paint thickly applied using a palette knife enriches the depth of the more muted colors. Daniels also seems to enjoy the interplay between light, objects, and water. Artist signed bottom right in paint. Johnny Daniels was the youngest of the Florida Highwaymen and he passed away in 2009.
The Highwaymen artists specialized in painting Florida landscapes in a flamboyant style. As it was not possible for them to sell their paintings in art galleries and shows, they were selling them right from the backs of their trucks, that’s how they gained their name – Highwaymen.
