Twilight Path

Painting a Day, Impressionist landscape of a path through a field at twilight by artist Steve Allrich

This is a view along another favorite walk in Northwest Connecticut, painted from memory, aided by a photo I took with my phone. The light this time of day is magic. Values are close - there's usually not a ton of contrast - so you have to do a lot with changes in color temperature. The warm light and cool shadows are so appealing. There's a reason they call it "magic hour" in the movies...
