Sunrise From My Bedroom Window

Sunrise From My Bedroom Window
5 x 7 inches
Oil on wood panel.

The sunrises in Colorado are as spectacular as the sunsets, but the ones in January seem to be the best of all. This is from a photo I took last week from my bedroom window. It was the first time I tried something like this, and will not be the last, although trying to capture the grandeur of such a sight is a daunting task.

I love the way you captured the sunset. Sunsets are really difficult. A lot of artists tend to make them too chocolate boxy. Yours is nice and muted.

I love the colors Bill, sunrises are so different in the feel of the colors compared to sunsets. Great job capturing it.

Fabulous, Bill, wish I lived next door to you!

Jean - Actually it was the sunrise, but I know what you mean, I tried to keep away from that with this one.

Terry - Yes, it was the colors that drew me to it. And also the fact that I have about a million different sunrise and sunset photos (we have some wonderful ones here in Colorado) so I figured it was time to get busy on one.

I wish you did too, Sharon, then we could paint together.
