Sunday Sketch

Hello everyone! Below is last weeks sketch now finished!

I saw the most beautiful sunrise on the way to work a couple of weeks ago, which inspired this painting. I only wish I could have pulled over and enjoyed the sight a little longer. The colors were so bright and vivid I couldn't help but appreciate God's work.
I'm still working on my new sketch, but here is what I have so far.

Hopefully I'll have time to finish it later today.
I can't wait to see what everyone else has been creating. I hope you'll join us over at Sophia's blog!

I love the colours in this. Great perspective and great design. I like how you've separted out the bands of colour. very effective.

And the figure in the foreground is wistful and the tree stark.

Great work.

Isnt it amazing when you really look at the colours in nature - they are so so vivid so often - almost not real!
