Early Morning / L'Aurore
The luminescence of an early summer’s morning is captured in watercolor. The overlaying of the colors adds depth and solidity to the ethereal translucence of the watercolors.
Geometric forms of this Mediterranean village street:
rectangular houses, garden walls, stairs; the vertical trunk palm tree is counter-posed against the rounded palm tree fronds. These fronds frame the painting as we roam over the scene and up through the rolling curves of the hills.
