Wanted to try my hand at painting a tricky lighting effect without resorting to tricky painting effects. Was hoping to bang this little exercise out in about an hour, but it ended up taking two. Just laying down strokes of color and value, I'm of a strong belief that most things can be shown in that manner. Could've played up the pinks around the central bolt a bit more for the true "glow" effect. The hues trended a bit more towards the yellows and oranges, particularly in the tree. Probably a subconscious move towards complements. Oils.
