As with many of my paintings, they seem to develop as I go along and many become part of a theme. The early morning light seen here was such a theme and I explored it in watercolor and also in oils. Some of the works were landscapes, others such as the Black Kite above, more wildlife oriented. I painted this one when I lived in Hong Kong and as mentioned in an earlier post, managed to get excellent reference if these birds so for once, it was easier to develop what I had into a painting. The view is one of looking down the mountainside during a hazy morning just before the sun rises. The background seems slightly too purplish in this image, perhaps because it is was scanned from a slide and as I no longer have the original, can't be sure about the true colors, Still, the painting is one that I am happy with and brings back many fond memories. Size is about 20" x 30" (51cm x 76cm), oil on canvas, private collection.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
