Dappled sunlight 6x4 ins oil on linen on board.  Three people sitting on a park bench in a shaded area. Bright sunlight getting through the trees and shrubs. I loved the way the dappled light hit the figures on the bench. By painting the figures in muted tones at first, and adding the dots of high colours after, lit the figures up, literally.  You can see the brush work is quite rough and I used the palette knife as well to place dabs of colour.
