Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I remember driving along this minor road in County Wicklow.

The Sugar loaf is on my right, Powerscourt Waterfall on my left.

The morning light was milky blue/green with flecks of weak yellow light just breaking through the curtains of soft rain falling upon the land.

As the mountain was emerging slowly into daylight, the mist covering it gave it a ghostly feel.

What struck me and sticks in my mind was the quality of light casting a particular atmosphere over the boggy scrub.

In sunlight, this land has a reddish green tinge but at that time, it had turned a copper and bronze colour while the Mountain changed from a light grey colour to a pinkish glow.

I don’t know if I captured that particular light here but it served as a starting point to creating this piece.

This painting is made on a deep edged wooden panel and is ready to hang

I would love to hear what you think.
