First Light.


First Light.
19cm x 25 cm. 7.5in x 10in.
Watercolour.

Standing at my window, perched above this new world I watch, with a sense of detached curiosity, as the city comes to life after only a few hours of sleep. The first light of a new day plays on the roofs and walls, softening and smoothing with a blue wash, a kind hand soothing away troubles.

This painting is for sale:
100 pounds (UK) 195 dollars (USA).
This includes the postage.

Lovely atmospheric sketch - just thinking about taking up oils again, and found you through yellow.

Hope you settle in well.

Great to see you back painting - and so nice to see a morning painting of early light and the new view.

It's my favourite time of day and I love that violet!
