"On another level, as noted by many, it was Amorsolo who discovered the quality of Philippine sunlight. More accurately, it was the shadow areas he painted with a richness of colors that previous artists had simply obscured with dark scumble. The full burst of Philippine sunlight, which actually washes out color and produces a blinding glare, he added only as accents to bring out a nude's form, or highlight a dalagang's face, or to balance the composition with patches of light in the distance. The backlighted subject was Amorsolo's method of depicting Philippine light. The color-richness of his shadow areas are what exude the quality of Philippine light. It would be more accurate to state that Amorsolo discovered and depicted the true colors of Philippine shade."
