How's Those Dapples

 

Delightful Dapples

Summer time, Summer time, Don't you love the summer ?

The weather is warmer and the sun is out more often creating those interesting dappled spots of light.  You know the ones that I mean. Those blocks of light that penetrate the dark. Painting something mundane can become interesting by the way direct light touches that object.

I had a fantastic time painting by the lakeside for a recent commission. The direct light and dark contrast kept moving as clouds went overhead, and the view of the lake (not in this painting) was gorgeous.

Over to you... Where do you go that you can see dapples of light?
