EGG TEMPERA

WAITING FOR THE GREEN FLASH

  9 X 3   Egg Tempera on Gesso Panel

PRIVATE COLLECTION

For all you landlubbers out there, The Green Flash is an atmospheric phenomenon that occurs when the sun is about 6 degrees below the horizon and a shaft of green light is seen above the horizon. It is extremely difficult to see and the atmosphere must be perfect to see it. The sky need to be clear and so it is unlikely that the green flash will happen this night, but sometimes the sky clears and there it is. You need to keep your eyes open or you will miss it!
