practicing sunrises

After a short walk early in the morning, sometimes I go upstairs to our cabin's loft to view the sunrise from the tiny balcony. These are two of this week's views, painted wet-on-wet. My usual wet-on-wet skies tend to look a bit washed out because I can never quite get enough strong pigment in the washes --- the paint dries so much lighter! So I'm practicing . . .


  1. Oh, Vicky, that's beautiful work!
    The sky is not easy to paint.

  2. Your skies are so beautiful! You really captured the glow of a sunrise! And your shadowed trees really set off the gorgeous colors.

  3. Thank you both, Jana and Susan! Texas skies are beautiful.
