This is the same light seen in the last painting looking in the oposite direction away from the source of light.   We think of shadows as being cast by people or objects, but there is no word, that I am aware of, for images cast by the sun like this one. Of course there are always both elements in play, but sometimes one is stronger than the other and the sun really creates an image for a moment or two that is quite striking.   I love the diference here between the color of the light from the east window on the right and the light from the west coming through the arched window on the stairs.
