Yesterday's painting

'Early Morning'
12" x 10"

This is the painting from yesterday which I was too late to photograph because the light had faded. It isn't quite resolved yet, but not far off. It was made from a little drawing I did last year of a stunning moment in summer looking across a lake that was bathed in early morning light. The only reference I had was the small drawing, so I had to rely on memory to re-capture the colours and re-create the moment...very tough if not impossible! The painting in reality contains more of a violet hue which my camera hasn't managed to pick up.
I won't be able to post over the weekend as I will be in London at the Opera!! It will my first time ever at a live Opera and I'm very excited!!
