Hello friends,

I am back on my feet and painting again, the back injury has begun to settle down. Yahoo!

Today’s daily painting is a partial view of a larger composition I am currently working on. For this composition I am using natural light which is different from an incandescent bulb that shines directional warm light. When using natural light shadows are more subtle because the light source is diffused and not directional, color choices become more nuanced as the entire color spectrum of natural light does not drown out any colors as incandescent can. I find painting with natural light a greater challenge as I must really see and not make assumptions on light and shadow.
