Cascading Radiant Light in an Old Ruin

Cascading Radiant Light in an Old Ruin - oil/panel - 12"x9" - sold

The varying patterns of light and dark really interested me here.
How could I describe different kinds of qualities of light in the scene with the one brush?

The Cascading diffused filtered light that lit up the interior of the ruin and created a feeling of space and atmosphere (that would be my center of interest), as well as the strong lights on the grass and upper walls.
And then there was also the light on the not to distant Burren landscape.

A great challenge with my limited palette.

Hope you like it.
