Foreground Shadows


Here's another painting which uses the technique of throwing a cast shadow across the foreground to create a frame.  The trees on the right lean into the painting and the trees on the left are lighter, being in the sunlight.  The cast shadow creates a middle dark that moves the viewer's eyes over it to the focal point of the oysterman tonging for his oysters.
