Like most of my work, this painting is mainly about the sun, but I have always been fascinated by paintings of night scenes. The use of deep dark tones, that subtly reveal and hide the objects in the scene, is something I want to explore more deeply. This is the first step in that direction. I've been looking at the work of the tonalist landscape painters, like George Innes, and taking inspiration from the drama of those night skies.
