oil on masonite
At an artist workshop last year, it was suggested that we practice different techniques of other artists that we admire. Afterwards I painted the above lab that was inspired by a painting by Cheri Christensen, an artist who incorporates wonderful backlighting in all of her works, most of which are farm animals. A link to her site is on the right. I think you will be impressed with the dramatic results that she accomplishes with the light source at the rear of the subject.
