Plein-air Efforts of the Day ...

Well, yesterday's efforts that is!

Plein-air / Light and Shadow Play.

Thank you.
What initially caught my eye in this view
was the streak of sunlight on the wintry grass 
and where the light fell on the tree.
It was nearing sunset
so I knew I had to work quickly.
The light moved gracefully across
the quiet scene.
Picking out tips of grasses
and shadows falling into undulations.
The branches played hide and seek
in the light and shadows.
It all looked
so beautiful and magical,
that at one point
is was hard to decide
which streak of light
which deep shadow
to paint. 
So, with the remaining
last light of the day,
with a feeling of contentment
I broke down the easel
and retired for the evening.
Please, stay tuned for more
what's new from the studio!
Cheers, ~ Polly ~
