I painted this to represent an early spring morning, with the low sun slowly rising, dew on the grass and wild flowers in the meadow. I used a cool tone for the yellow and aimed to give the illusion of a ‘glow’ from the sun - both due to the early time of day. I have been inspired by many of the Spring colours that I’ve been surrounded by recently and wanted to show this through colourful flowers in the foreground, but at the same time not making them too bright to keep in line with the feeling of dawn. I aimed to give the viewer a sense of peace, calm and stillness when looking at this painting.
