Backyard Illusions_Day_11

I always carry my camera with me, just in case. The reference for this little painting was taken when I visited a friend’s home and she gave me a tour of the backyard which obviously backs up to some lovely woods. It was early summer, and the light coming through the trees was brilliant. It was important to me to incorporate many warm tones in addition to yellow to balance the coolness of the leaves in shadow.

I titled this 6” x 6” pastel Backyard Illusions.
