Art School Sunrise

"Art School Sunrise"___6x8 oil on linen panel___$190, unless you were in the workshop! ;)
Yesterday's post showed this same sunrise facing the west. Of course this one was painted when the sun first came over the horizon in the east.... I really did not want to put that yellow bit in the center, but I had to...it was there...yellow as you please!!
If you feel like an art student right now, pull up the blog and look at them together. It looks like a whole new palette of colors, but I ONLY USED A LIMITED PALETTE OF THREE (3) COLORS plus white!!! Isn't it amazing that these 4 pigments can create all the VARIETY of a rainbow??...and a sunrise from east to west!!!
This is what you will learn in my workshops...how to get all this variety with the limited palette, which will automatically UNIFY your painting...It is a wonderful skill, and EASY, so much easier than wrangling 12 or more colors on your palette!...Next year's Fredericksburg workshop will be June 13-15, so let me know if you want one of the 12 - 15 spots, because I am going to keep it small! vvaughan8@yahoo.com

Nice painting and I like the yellow, but who says you have to paint it because it's there?

Could you share which colors you use? I was wondering if you are using a blue or if it's a black. Thanks...
