Summer Sun


"Summer Sun" 20x16 oil on canvas

I finished this painting yesterday and had a lot of fun doing it. I have a large window in my studio and I have found that if I put my still life right in front of the window, I get all this beautiful light shining through and back lighting my subject. I then placed a spotlight next to the still life as well to accentuate the flowers and water pitcher more. This was a fun painting. I will be posting a small study I did of these roses later.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
