Evening Shadows--Original Landscape Oil Painting

Capturing a backlit tree can be a challenge, but the difficulty was eased by beginning with a black gessoed surface. This painting is 5x7 inches on a black surface and dipicts the shadows of an evening in early autumn. Leaves on the maple are turning a golden color and settling on the grass. When the painting is dry, I will list it for sale in my Etsy Gallery along with other small tree paintings.
