Quiet Spring Day

Oil on board, 6 x 8 inches

The gentle Spring sunlight pervaded the wood, providing soft shadows.  This is the sort of light I love, rather than strong sunlight that gives harsh shadows and strong contast.

I changed the actual scene a little, moving the woodland path so that it didn't go straight out of the picture plane, and also put in the Silver Birch (which are great fun to paint) that wasn't actually there.
