Summer Dawn nr Duncannon by Carl Strickland
This new original landscape oil painting from Irish artist Carl Strickland captures a serene and picturesque scene near Duncannon, Co. Wexford. The focal point of the artwork is a vibrant green field, a flock of sheep peacefully graze lending a sense of tranquility and pastoral charm.
In the distance, the sun begins to rise over the sea casting its warm and golden rays across the canvas. As the sunlight touches the water, it creates a sparkling effect, evoking a sense of movement and life.
To the left side of the painting, a cluster of trees stands in the background. Their silhouettes are partially illuminated by the morning light, filtering through the leaves and creating intricate patterns of light and shadow.
On the right side of the painting, a smaller group of trees can be seen. Although they are not as prominent as the ones on the left, they contribute to the overall balance and harmony of the composition. The morning sunlight gently touches their branches, illuminating them and creating a beautiful contrast against the blue sky.
Artist Carl Strickland skillfully captures the essence of a serene morning in the countryside, highlighting the beauty of nature and the harmonious coexistence of various elements. The painting invites the viewer to immerse themselves in the tranquility of the scene, as the rising sun heralds the start of a new day filled with hope and possibility.
