I pretty much steer clear of painting sunrises or sunsets. I figure God does such a great job at them, why even attempt to re-create something already done so well by the Master? This month though our challenge group chose the sun as our topic so I've been well.... challenged!
For this painting, I used a method I learned from a London based artist, Stephen Brown. He mixes up a big batch of the sky color and then introduces that into every other color he uses in a painting. The thinking is that it gives the painting unity. After all, the sky color does reflect in to everything on earth. No?
