Margaret River Dawn

Original Painting by Ken Rasmussen

Dimensions 1220 × 1220 mm

Oil on Canvas

I’m really pleased with this painting. It is about driving through the town of Margaret River in the very early morning when it’s still dark. You see the buildings stand out like cards in the headlights. I’m using two blues, cyanine and ultramarine. When combined like this the blues interact with each other in changing ways. Sometimes the ultramarine will look like violet and sometimes the pthalo will look like green. It’s a way of trying to depict light levels so low that you can’t really tell what the colours are. You can’t see the trees in the darkness but at certain angles, they show up as lines and then disappear back into the painting.
