Morning Has Broken | Oil on Canvas | 3' x 4'
'Morning Has Broken' is a symphony of color working together in a harmonious way to produce a sweet note of joy. The joy of a new day, the joy of light breaking over water, the joy of art. So wonderful to paint, this work was executed as part of a number of very large works inspired by water.
This artwork shows a diverse painterly treatment - washes of diluted oil underpainting, a build up of brushwork and finally small thick impasto treatments to produce a dense surface of oil paint with a great variety of tonal and chromatic shifts. So much fun to paint ... watch for more original artworks in this series!
