Original Creation

Sunlight - Bill Alexander

Tom0779 26 Feb 2024

My painting from last weekend. It is very similar to mountain river I painted last week. This one works with light and shadow contrast having some sunrays and and some bright parts as well as some shadows.
It is a painting I used liquid black in the middle part to create the dark band of trees. This worked perfectly. Overall it took me around 90 minutes for the complete painting including brush washing.
Oils on canvas panel 16 x 20 inches (40 x 50 cm)

Photo luvs this tom!!!

Very nice Tom, only thing is that I find the curves of the path in Bills paintings somewhat strange ...

Looks great! Love this one!

Fantastic as we have come to expect! Love the dark vs light in this Tom! I have this one on my list but am a bit intimidated by it.

Love everything about this!!


Great contrasts and depth in this painting Tom, well done, cheers

One of my absolute favorites of Alexander. You did a masterful job with it. Love the contrast between lights and shadows :)

Love it Tom! Again, your highlights really indicate without a doubt where the sunlight comes from. We can also tell that this is probably a little after the sunrise, after the pink and orange colors vanished. It is replaced by a strong rich yellow hue sunlight. Gorgeous compo!

Super nice, Tom!

Awesome Tom. I especially like the midground tree work.

Thank you everyone. I am really happy that you all like my picture!
