Dawn of a New Year

"Dawn of a New Day" - watercolour - 18 x 26 cm


We are well into the new year now and I haven't posted anything yet, so here something to start with. I have some ideas for things I want to try this year, so the subject of a sunrise seems appropriate.

  1. Hi Keith, I like how you painted the sun, I think it's the hardest thing to even approach let alone capture, Thanks, Matt

    1. Hi Matt, yes it's very hard to get the feeling of such bright light in a painting.

  3. Good afternoon Keith!... You have managed to capture the soilitary essence of a "peopleless" dawn in addition to the wonderful bright lighting effect which other artists avoid. Another signature Tilley-esque panorama!

    Good luck with the infusion of new ideas for 2014! I'll be aboard for certain!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  6. That is really very beautiful, Keith. The openness of the sky is loaded with promise and possibility. A sense of light breaking through the dark of winter.
