The work Morning Mood on Lake Constance shows, in an impressionistic manner, a section of the sky over Lake Constance. The low sky blurs with the lake, so that the horizon line can only be guessed at. The sun shimmers through the middle of the cloud bands that run through the picture in blue to purple. Towards the upper edge of the picture the clouds subside and the sky is dark white. The calm mood of the picture is not only achieved by a careful choice of color, but is also emphasized by the drawn out colour application.
