Rays of Sunshine

“Rays of Sunshine” — plein air field study in oil on 8×10″ birch panel by Margie Guyot

Another sunny day here and I made a beeline back down to Antrim Creek Natural Area, only 3 miles away. We’ve had a heat wave lately, melting much of the snow. About the only stuff remaining is in the shadows. This view is of the path leading through the dunes, down to the shore of Lake Michigan. When I saw the rays of sunshine falling across the snow, I just had to try to paint it!

That’s straight Vasari Brilliant Yellow, Extra Pale that I used for the sunlit snow. It’s also wonderful for the whites in clouds. Very warm-white.
