After a fantastic summer, this new Paul Brown collection features numerous London sunrise paintings.
One of Brown’s favourite views is looking out towards St. Paul’s Cathedral from Waterloo Bridge. Setting up early allows Brown to capture the sun as it rises behind St. Paul’s. This is a rare event, happening only in the summer months on a clear day.
Brown is fascinated by the colours created by dawn and dusk. This has led him to paint the sunrise and sunsets in both Venice and Corfu.
Brown is equally at home painting beach scenes and is well known for his triptych depictions of such scenes. Many of his beach scenes feature his own children and he makes regular painting trips to the beaches of West Wittering and Norfolk.
