dense fog before daybreak
Fog, especially dense fog is really about the abstraction of shapes and value control. Edges play a role as well. Note how my stronger edges are in the forward mass tree shapes and how little information is given in the next shape, very soft. I did this one at about 6:30 am, which would me that the sun was at the horizon, although there is no sign of it. It was funny one person stopped his car and asked, "what on earth was I painting?" He went on to say, "But you can't see anything!" Alas, how could I explain to this man that it was in the "unseeing" or the mystery of the scene that was so compelling. To each her/his own!
