This painting came about because of the light. I have used this setting for other paintings as it is a favourite spot to ripen fruit and other edible that need to be picked early.
The back lighting at certain times of day is a great inspiration.
Materials: Matisse acrylics on canvas board.

Very nice! I really like the light and shadows in this one!
