A prime example of Alex's use of traditional watercolor techniques, Morning Sun juxtaposes "wet-on-wet" washes with "dry brush" details. The painting includes playful visual symbolism, iconography, and narrative elements (such as a plastered-over woodstove flue on the wall). Describing Morning Sun in Quiet Light, C. G. Byers wrote: "It occurs to you after looking at Alex's treatment of light that he is as much interested in time, that in fact light and time are intertwined, and they both affect color and perception. He paints a small bedroom scene in daytime with extremely even light, and it becomes a rainbow of color with only slight differences in tone brought on by shifting light."
