Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_GOOD DAY SUNSHINE

I was set-up and ready to paint, just waiting for the sun to rise over the ridge of the valley.  No point in starting something that was going to radically alter as soon as the sun appeared.  I was anticipating doing a subject that was far to the left of this view, but when the sun rose I found myself fascinated by the illumination of the landscape as I looked directly toward the direction of the sun.  A nice thing that happens in this particular type of lighting is that you get a lot of nice dark silhouette shapes that you can arrange, and the light from behind does a beautiful thing by tracing the silhouette outlines with illuminated edges.  Gorgeous effect, and FUN!
