First Sun of the Day

By Rob Pointon

First Sun of the Day

This painting depicts the small harbour and boat huts at Cabasson with the first of the day’s sun inside the bay lighting up the right-hand side. I have tried to highlight the difference between shade and sunlight with obviously different brush strokes. Painting light on water encourages abstraction, as it is of course impossible to accurately depict over a period of time. The fun downward waves of bright colours on the right pay homage to the influence of the abstracted water paintings of Egon Schiele and David Hockney.
