Back-lit Trees

...Back-lit Trees...
oil on canvas panel - 6" x 6"

Painting the glow of backlighting can be difficult. But a glaze of transparent paint really captures the effect on these leaves. The ground shadows also are transparent as well as the shaded trees on the left. I made up a lot of this, so I hope it doesn't look too unreal. I'm not going to say what I changed, hoping you can just enjoy it as it is. 


  1. Lovely light in this painting, beautifully done. I think it would make a stunning large work.

  2. Thank you, Diana. Yes, I have been thinking of doing it larger.
