Lit by the Sun on a Cloudy Day


I took the reference photo for this last week. It was one of those scenes that stopped me dead in my tracks. It was a cloudy day and I was out taking photos. There was this beautiful field with some hills in the background and I stood there looking at views through my camera. Off in the distance were these two (three now in the painting) trees so I zoomed in on them and all of a sudden the sun came out and lit up this beautiful scene.

It's 12"x18", Mount Visions & Richeson Handmade pastels on Uart 500 grit.
