January Sunrise

Whilst driving to my Ware class yesterday morning (9 January) I saw a spectacular sunrise. The sun was behind a line of leafless trees which were in silhouette. During the lunch break between classes I quickly painted a 4 x 6 inch watercolour sketch of the sunrise and used a black pen to show where the trees were.

This is a good way of reminding yourself how a scene looked if you either haven’t got or are unable to use (because of driving) a camera. It’s a good way of training your memory and also helps when you want to work it up into a full size painting.

    Very effective. Perhaps we could have a session using pen and wash!
