Morning Light, 6"x 6", oil
(This piece is in a private collection in Pearland, Texas)
"Colors change; in the morning light, red shines out bright and clear and the blues merge into their surroundings, melting into the greens; but by evening the reds loose their piquancy, embracing a quieter tone and shifting toward the blues in the rainbow. Yellow flowers remain bright, and white ones become luminous, shining like ghostly figures against a darkening green background."
― Rosemary Verey, The Scented Garden, 1981
This painting was done mostly during the early hours of the morning. I liked the reflections of the light through the glass onto the table. The light doesn't reach far enough to bathe the apple as well and because of that it looks dark but rich in color. The painting was done in the alla prima technique.
