Follow The Light

Follow The  Light     12" x 9"    oil on linen
I had a good time at the easel today with the color and light in this one.There are some dark areas that are difficult to photograph as they have subtle color shifts that I enjoy, but I think photography for artists is an ongoing challenge. This scene is from our trip to Kodiak and was toward the end of the day with pale light, which made for warm shadow areas.

Wonderful colours! For me what really makes this work so well is the blue of the trees with the light peeking through.
