Dawn in the Mountains

An early morning view of Lake MacKenzie, surrounded by mountains including Emily Peak. It’s from about 20 minutes after the (Just Before) Dawn in the Mountains painting, when the sunlight has hit the valley floor and everything is in colour.

Colours are many different shades of blue, green and turquoise, with some pale brown and lots of white.
