Symphonic Sun

2017, Acrylic finished on canvas, 920 x 1220 mm.

The full orchestra is present today; the large dark masses of cloud and the lighter notes too, skipping through the sunbeams! It has been quite a show, with vast volumes intertwined and unfolding across the sky; but here it is, the final grand movement begins!
Yellows and reds at the horizon with huge darker shapes above, this setting sun is sumptious and grand. Still plenty of light in the sky, this lovely painting has a wonderful sense of distance and scale.
Not too dark even for a light coloured room; acrylic on canvas mounted onto framed hardwood, this portrait aspect skyscape is perfect for a narrow wall. Light the bottom third in the evening to create a magic hour all night long!
