Sunrise over Strait of Juan de Fuca
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.
