Early morning scenes have a special atmosphere to them. The normal hustle and bustle has not started and the quietness is only broken by the sound of birds as they greet the dawn. In this scene we can almost hear the honking of the geese and duck as they come flying into their favourite haunt.

In this lesson you will learn:

1 How to crop for a suitable composition
2 How to add life to the painting
3 How to position the birds for compositional balance
4 How to depict the mist in the distance
5 The colouring and tonal ranges for this morning scene
