Sunrise Over the Mountain

Each morning, I rise before dawn to check the sky for clouds that may set up a wonderful sunrise. The last two days have been clear as a bell, but today had a glorious beginning.  I started with my darks before that light really popped, so I had my composition in completely.  As the sun hit those clouds, color spread throughout the sky, and I painted quickly!  Knowing this light is fleeting, ilayed in every color important to my painting, then worked to cover all of my panel. I love getting to study the color of the sunrise in such a place as this!  Day 11 is my Artist Residency, day 21 of the #stradaeasel challenge and painting number 4341 in 4341 days.
