Looking back, I have chosen 7 works from my Bath Marathon of paintings which Highlight Shadows and Raking Light.
This is number 1 in the series- it was painted with an evening back-lighting at Widcombe Parade, Bath.

This particular Series highlight the effect of shadows and raking light in urban space in a Modern City.
|The painting in progress- It was one of those afternoon's that a plein air painter longs for. Wonderful warm evening light glowing and casting beautiful long shadows on the pavement!|
I love the interaction of light and shadows in urban space and this is what the emphasis of these 7 paintings are. I'll be posting them in the next few days.
|Picture of the scene- You'll notice clearly from the picture, that if I was to paint from this picture I would have missed out some wonderful warm colours that can only be experienced while at the scene, the camera can't pick those bits!|
There's nothing like experiencing the scene right there and then!-Adebanji Alade
