Dawn Reflections | April 2012

The inspiration, for this new body of work, came from my early morning walks over Frensham Common and around the ponds. It is so easy to avoid getting up early but the rewards are huge and give one a real sense of both mental and physical wellbeing as well a feeling of enormous privilege and awe. These paintings celebrate new beginnings; the start of a new day with the glorious sunrise is amplified by the reflections off the pond whilst the landscape is in semi darkness.

I paint the sky with a lot more clarity than the landscape because at that time of the day that is all you can focus on. In order to emphasise the light I have only under primed the areas of sky and its reflections to enable the pure colour of the oil to describe the vivid sunset. The areas of paint on the raw canvas are distorted by the texture and tone underneath to create the gloom of the landscape just before the sun appears above the horizon.

To me, the sky represents the important things in life; it is so easy to get wrapped up in detail and the trivial whether in a creative way or in life in general. I hope these paintings will encourage the observer to think about the bigger picture and to feel uplifted and look forward to the promise of what is ahead.
