and the next day, very hazy sun:
Both are 8" X 10", oil on stretched canvas.
Haven't painted outdoor still lifes in quite a while. The first day was clear with very strong sun, but the second day had a hazed-over sky with almost a misty feel in the air. I didn't realize just how much the haze was diffusing the sunlight until I finished the painting and saw how low-contrast it looked.
I like strong sun better. :)
