Glorious Morning 1


Glorious Morning 1, L. Daniel, 6 x 8, SOLD 

A couple of weeks ago, I got out early in the morning to paint the sunrise. I finished one on location (will show you that tomorrow) and then came home to paint two more of that magnificent, 30 minute light show. It happens fast! This was the "crack" of dawn, which happened just before sunrise, and the first in the mini series of three. 

See more Small Works

PS - I waited to post them until I could finish a larger painting of this one... will post that later as well.

Laurel, so stunning! Just beautiful, as always!
I bet the series of three, shown all together is really a knockout! Actually it would be wonderful to see a post of the 3 of them, side by side! I Just love this!

Truly an awesome series.
Capturing the right value and chroma of the landscape relative to the fleeting morning and evening light is so difficult for me. You strike the balance masterfully, Laurel.
