Ancient Midnight


Pastel on Pastelmat card 8 x 6in (20 x 15cm)

Ancient Midnight is a vertically-oriented artwork that captivates with its understated beauty. Against a black background, the piece portrays a night sky above a landscape, evoking the tranquil moments of dusk or dawn. The upper portion reveals a deep blue sky adorned with delicately scattered white stars, creating the illusion of a starry night. Shades of blues blend seamlessly, hinting at the presence of swirling clouds.

Transitioning towards the lower part, warm tones take over, with horizontal streaks of yellow, gold, pink, and a touch of purple. These hues delicately mimic the colours of a sunrise or sunset on the horizon, radiating a sense of gentle light reflecting off a body of water or a serene landscape.

Ancient Midnight emanates serenity and natural beauty, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the peacefulness of a beach under a night sky at the cusp of dawn or the last moments before nightfall. This artwork effortlessly captures the essence of introspection and encourages contemplation of the subtle transitions within nature's eternal cycles.
