    Balance Between Light and Dark

    This painting's composition achieves its balance by careful placement of light and dark areas, balancing these differently weighted areas in a visually pleasing design.

    I too feel bathed in gold

    Subtle, wide ranging values in a dominant palette of gold tones placed skillfully by their complements, and loose, lush brush strokes, capture this fleeting moment at dawn. I can believe I am right there, the warm breeze on my face.

    Awesome feeling of sunlight

    I find this painting to be so striking in both color and composition. The sense of golden sunlight just permeates my mind.

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.
