Oil on canvas
24 x 32 in. (61 x 81.3 cm)

Private collection

It’s a challenge to cover a larger sized canvas with sunrise colors in the few minutes before everything changes to daylight. Larger brushes help, as does having gorgeous yet uncomplicated, scene. Photos of the moment are necessary, for me at least, to be able to later develop the nuances of the subject matter. Begun on location but finished mainly in the studio January 2016.
