....so headed for the kitchen and the ground coffee. Coming down the stairs this scene hit me. At least something like it hit me because I'm sure my visual memory and the few notes on a piece of paper are off...but you might get the feeling of what it was. Like most sunrises, it didn't last more than two or three minutes. The photo I snapped was worthless for painting so I ignored it.
That bluish stripe was really there but my eyes couldn't see a lot unless I moved so that a tree blocked the sun enough that I could register the color. Not likely a great sunrise painting but it was a fun sketch. I think it has a hint of that Tommy Thompson flair about it.....unintentionally....but, hey, if I can get in the ball park.....

Burnt Carmine, Transparent Red Oxide, Burnt Sienna, Cad Orange, Yellow and Red, and the usual host of blues. I'm hoping that when I look at this in a year I will know what I should have done, but then I'll wish I hadn't posted it.
Thanks for looking.
