As I was finishing the first painting, the sun came out and cast a complex array of light and shadow in the woods. Soft edges with a vignetting effects alongside starkly lit branches reminiscent of a photo negative. Confusing to try to make sense of in a painting but extremely inspiring at the same time. Will definitely be doing more of this type of scene in the future!
