I love the afternoon light, particularly in the late Fall, when the sun sets early giving a brief golden glow to all it touches. The contrast with the deep shadows in the foreground is the hook. The three deckers are yellow and it's a great place to use the yellow/violet color harmony. This is an Urban scene in the Lithuanian Village area of Brockton. I'll work from this sketch to do this in oils where I think I can achieve more subtlety in the shadow area. Despite the heat we are enjoying an onshore sea breeze today and the tide is right to head to the beach with my book. Stay cool everyone!
