I painted this scene once before this last summer I think. I wanted to give it another try to work more on the shadowed areas of this scene. I really like afternoon light and the variations of light and shadow that time of day brings. I absolutely love what the sun does to color at evening too...that wonderful golden time of day. Theres only a hint of that light in this painting as it is just prior to that time of day...but there was this great shadowed area to play with so it was worth another shot at re-doing this scene.
