White Barn, Late day Sun, oil/canvas mounted to panel, 12x16
Over the past few years I have come to enjoy painting light that falls from over my shoulder. This light is particularly beautiful because it imparts its color temperature upon the objects making shapes flat and colorful. The world can be seen as a patchwork of shapes. The shadows are minimal which help to delineate between the shapes but don't overpower the painting. The light, as always, remains the true subject.
This painting is based on Study 04-30-09. Take a look.
