I love watching the glow that comes with dawn. It’s another in between – not day yet, but certainly not night. In Near Dawn I wanted to explore the mystery of the night sea contrasted with first light and the way that glow of warmth works its way down to the rolling waves. I also wanted to play with building textures and nuances into the water – unexpected bubbles to suggest that this place is very much alive, that there is much more you can’t see – might never see. And that’s ok, as long as you can acknowledge it. Enjoy.
In surfing we call it Dawn Patrol. Nice! Lawrence Powers
Thank you Larry. It’s my favorite time.
Beautiful! and I love it when you show close-ups of your painting, it makes me really appreciate what I am looking at.
Thank you Margaret. Often the subtleties in a painting are completely lost when seen on the web. The detail shots are one way to compensate.
