July Evening Light, River Road, Topsfield, MA.
Early evening sunlight in late July is captured in this painting. The light in this painting has a dramatic quality that reminds me of one of my favorite artists, Caravaggio. Caravaggio placed light colors against dark to create a dramatic effect in his work, known as chiaroscuro in Latin. The early evening light plays against the dark shadows giving off a similar quality. Soon night will fall and the light captured in this painting will be gone, just as the summer slips away into autumn.
