Dawn light has a gentle quality, it is soft and washes over us as a balm
welcoming us to the new day. The white grey light falls upon an open field
washing away the night and the mists that cover it in silence.
In a similar way to your previous painting ‘Flatlands’ this strikes me as a very subtle painting and the colours conjure up that early morning veiled light full of vapour. The delicate pinks and soft blues ‘speak’ specifically to the viewer about dawn. It is lovely.
Thank you Chris, for your thoughtful comment, trying to simplify and let the atmosphere and colour do the talking, or maybe it is the new season having its influence
