Marvelous sense of drama. I guess high contrast will create it every time!
The precise lines of the buildings in the hot, clear light and the stark green outline of the cherry tree show a landscape that has been washed clean in the night's storms.
What a treat every day...inspires me to get my brushes and paint out...
Lovely picture. Nice composition, but I dont get the feeling of it being hot and heavy, but that could be the colouring on my computer.
I hope you are standing in the shad to paint this? the light looks very intense...as do the shadows...
