About this Painting
I have visited Kraków in Poland a number of times and spend a most enjoyable short stay there with my wife in 2007. I always stayed in a hotel near the Vistula River and whenever the weather was good would go running along the riverbank. On one spring morning, the mist was rising off the river and the sunrise was spectacular. I knew that one day I had to paint this scene. Here you can see the sun rising over the Gothic Wawel Castle.
A few hundred metres upstream, I saw the interesting boat, which I have added to the scene to provide interest, contrast and depth.
