Monument Valley just after sunrise
























I was very fortunate in 2010 to stay a night in Monument Valley with the Navaho tribe in a Hogan. The next morning we rose at 5am for one of the most memorable sunrises of my life. This painting shows just how much colour is out there, and was a real learning curb for me mixing saturated colours so they would fall out of the foreground and create atmosphere. This travel memory is one of my favourites.

thanks Pierre, it was really tricksy balancing the saturation.
I would never of guessed before painting it that there was so much violet out there!
