|6/1/20 Maple Leaf neighborhood|
Last fall I suddenly discovered the beauty of backlighting from a couple of sketchers whose work I had been observing. I tried sketching it a few times, but then the rainy season settled in, and there went my opportunities for more study. Last week my interest was rekindled when I came upon some striking backlit views early in the morning.
Now I’m on a mission to find as many backlit scenes in my neighborhood as I can. Here’s one from earlier this week: A tall laurel hedge surrounds this property, and I was enchanted by the slim strip of light marking the entry in the center.
