acrylic on paper
8 x 8 inches
This path is actually at a local park just beyond the ballfields. It circles around the perimeter for a mile and is popular with walkers. It is a challenge to paint shadows and I think more so in acrylic with its faster drying time.
Shadows are transparent. I kept reminding myself of that fact. The colors needed to change as the shadows fell on different surfaces: gravel, fallen leaves, sticks, mud, etc. While shadows are still a learning process, I am inspired to paint more dramatic shadows like these in future works.
Many thanks for staying with my blog for this painting challenge. The days are zipping by quickly!
