Light and Shade

Dappled Light, 30x36, acrylic

I really do enjoy painting trees. In this one the light was very strong in contrast to the shadows. I wanted an overall warm feeling, so I didn't make the shadows too cool. Overall I am quite pleased with the effect.


  1. What a talent you have. Amazed every time you post a work. You have created such an inviting scene.

  2. Amanda, Thanks for visiting my blog. Your work is amazing. You have effectively captured the light in this scene! Are they redwood trees?

  3. Hi Lori, I think that they are Douglas Firs. In the photograph they were very dark. I wanted to give them a warmer colour and lighter value to keep the scene more airy feeling.


Please leave a comment I appreciate the feedback.
