Light Filled Sunrise 12x16

Light Filled Sunrise  12x16 oil on canvas

The sky was a wonderful mix of cool and warm colors.  I started with a thin layer of thalo red rose and built up the texture and color from there.  The view is along a walking path in Pecan Valley Park, Benbrook, Texas.  The sunrise views from here are a constant inspiration for me.

This blooming bush is one of the first burst of color in the spring time.  I spied these at the Botanical Gardens in Ft.  Worth. I painted on location and gathered reference photos for studio paintings.  I create my paintings in layers and the final is with the palette knife. I love to create drama with texture and color.

It changed in a drastic shades of orange, pink and blue.  I was amazed at the array of colors in this beautiful morning sky.  It was both a challenge and joy to create on canvas.  I started with a warm base and used the paint brush  to lay in the big shapes.  I quickly grabbed the palette knife and started building texture and warm colors.
