'Lever du Soleil Glorieux' - 9x12"
Hey everyone, this is a new painting ('Glorious Sunrise') on primed paper done with water mixable oil paints. I'm sorry for the lack of posts and I am still doing portraits, I just like doing these little sunset scenes as a break from people every now and then.
Above is the whole painting, I love using a palette knife for water and then dabbing a heavily loaded brush around the sun for its shine. The land in the distance on the right of the painting was just lightly painted on with a mixture of cobalt blue and cadmium red. Distant land appears quite blue and the further away it is, the more blueish it appears.
Thanks for looking and feel free to drop a comment. God bless.
