The play of the sunlight falling through the foliage onto the forest floor gave Van Gogh an opportunity to experiment with innumerable variations of green. Covering the canvas is a pattern of green flecks, highlighted with white, yellow and even red. And yet there is some depth; a line of yellow across the center ground suggests light shining into a clearing located in the middle distance.
