"Backlit Willow" Plein air painting with Jim Lamb, Juanita Bay Park, Kirkland

I attended another plein air class with Jim Lamb. Along with three other artists, we spent the day at Juanita Bay Park in Kirkland Washington painting on a beautiful sunny, summer day.  One of the tips I picked up from Jim was to look for a backlit scene in the middle of the day when the sun is high.
8x10 oil on panel.

Thank you Susan! I think that was a helpful tip for PA painting!

You really caught the way the willow glows with the sun coming through it. That escapes me so far. Beautiful painting!
