Morning Light 02, 60 x 40 x 3 inches acrylics on canvas in progress - phase 01 Morning Light 02, Phase 03 work in progress Morning Light 02, Phase 07 work in progress Morning Light 02, Phase 09 work in progress

Phase 01, 03 and 07 show various changes and adjustments made as I attempt to paint Morning Light 02 as close as possible to the original version. As this is a unique individual painting in its own right, copying is not the goal. As work progresses, the most important thing is to find the same light and ethereal qualities as in the first version.
