Morning Sunlight



12x16" Oil on Stretched Linen

The curtain on the right is a skirt with a pleated hemline.  With a lot of manipulation of my lighting, I was able to simulate sunlight through a "window", using aluminum foil to control the direction of the light.   This was a joy to paint!

This made my heart leap with pleasure when I saw it. A simply lovely painting, so romantic. I am a sucker for beauty. I wish there was more of it around.
I then enjoyed reading about your ingenuity of creating the light source. Good for you and thanks for passing it on.

This is gorgeous, and I was so excited to see that you have a little vase just like one I own (and have always wanted to paint) Your painting just made my morning!
