Jack Providenti
oil on canvas

The mood of the early morning is what captured & inspired me to paint this. In order to communicate what I observed, as well as my emotional response to it, I applied a technique known as"tonalism" (an artistic style that emerged in the 1880s when landscapes were painted with an overall tone of colored atmosphere or mist). Because of my strong affinity for color, I put sort of an "impressionistic" twist on it, rather than portraying it subdued & shadowy the way a true tonalist would.
