My inspiration for this piece came from imagining a cavern where a light was shining in through a small opening. I used the warm browns and oranges to represent the cavern rocks reflecting into the water. I felt that the warm tones complimented the cooler tones of the mist above. Again, like some of my other event work, I aimed to focus on the perception of colour and how this can be altered based on the lighting of the surroundings.
