Sunrise with clouds

My next painting for my sky class is a sunrise with clouds. I painted it from a photo I took while on a walk around Oak Bay Marina on Vancouver Island.

I started the painting by first wetting the paper then dropping Aureolin and Permanent Rose onto the wet paper.


After this initial wash of color, I let the paper dry. Then I wet it again and painted more of the Aureolin and Permanent Rose onto the paper.


This intensifies the color and it starts to create a nice glow. I left instructions with my class to complete these two steps as their homework. Next week I will be showing how to put in the darks.

Thank you Gary! I really enjoy your work. Yellowstone is my favorite place to visit. My mother grew up near the Park so we visited about every year when I was younger.
