As Night Falls
About this artwork
Artist George Peebles depicts a fiery haze of a sunset across a wet marshland. Tall and wavy leaf-covered silhouettes of trees appear in the distance while grass grows thinly in the foreground. Bold and complementing hues by composition create a compelling mood achieved by the fading of light, contrast, and color. George is known for his dramatic fall landscapes and panoramic ocean vistas. He enjoys painting brief, electric moments in nature. He often draws on his surroundings in Michigan but ultimately paints entirely from his imagination.
