Hedge, Late Afternoon.

Hedge, Late Afternoon. (Landscapes 10)

Walking home in the low sunlight of a late autumn afternoon the hedgerows are, for a short while, made of bronze, gold and diamonds. Sculptures of light, filigree branches swoop and tangle together, points of pure gold push their way through like a fairytale princes sword.
I have tried to capture some of the mayhem of colour and light in this painting. If you are interested in the process of its making then today I have explained it as best I can, from start to finish on Muddy Red Shoes

I love how you've captured that intense, dramatic light--that's a bewitching time of day, isn't it? And you DID it! Kudos!

This is really a lovely, stunning painting. I know you showed how you did it and I also know I couldn't even come close to what you did.
