Liz Cutler #52 Bayview backyard

Another 12x 12 oil on plywood panel, I like this format as it forces me to figure out the composition more than a rectangle. I was all packed for painting on the shore when I saw strong bands of light, in the yard so I set up and began painting shapes of light and dark. Without a thumbnail value sketch I ran into trouble, I lost the shapes of the brightly lit trees, too many directional brushstrokes and the alizerian crimson took some how over.

Slightly Cezannesque, I like it, especially the capture of light. In fact, the more I look at it, the more I like it.

You have great success capturing the movement of light, so I guess I like the "too many directional brushstrokes", they feel like beams of light falling.

....i like it as is. I feel the sunlight and movement through the trees.
