Time of day

Many times artists paint in the morning.  But lately, I've been painting late in the day or early evening.  This time of year, the light is so beautiful because of its angle.  In this painting on Grimes Cove, I fell in love with the light on the pebbly beach below the cottage.  The back lighting cast some wonderful shadows, both on the beach, the house, and the clouds.  The reflections of the rocks in the water also caught my attention. 

Painting at a different time of day can reveal subjects in even the most familiar of locations.
