(Christensen, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell me, oil on board, 7 x 20″)

The glowing aspect . . . There’s no special paint or trick with lights. It’s about color, value, temperature, and intensity. Getting those relationships right. I also like late-evening light, so I try and go out just before sunset. The light here on the Vineyard is different than New Mexico, where I live. A bit softer, I’d say, and there are more greens, of course. That changes the way the light hits the subject and the reflected light on the animals.
