Trying Something New

Hello and wecome! Once again, I'm linking with Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches this week. (links on the right) I hope you will join in the fun!
This week was all about the sunrises here in South Carolina. I saw the prettiest one on Monday, and couldn't wait to come home from work and try painting it, this time in oils. For those who visit my blog, you may remember I tried painting sunsets in almost every medium, but I didn't have a chance to try oils. (you can read about it HERE.) So, here is my first attempt:

I've worked on it each day, so I'm not sure it's finished!
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has been making this past week! Happy PPF and SS!

Your sunset is lovely. We tend to have gorgeous sunrises where I live, but we don't often have these kinds of sunsets.

Tracey Fletcher King said...

sunsets are hard aren't they but you have handled this really well and your first go at oils makes it even more impressive... there is something about the smell of oil paint that immediately transports me back to art school... love the memories it evokes...xx
