Luminosity

Graphite drawing is my passion but the painting below is an example of why I love oil painting. The luminosity that you can achieve with oil paint is remarkable. The back light leaves just glow with sunlight which, along with the shadows of leaves on leaves, drew me to paint this piece.



This is the first layer of color for this small piece and it will now have to dry for a couple of days before moving onto the next layer.
