Sunrise over the Rio Grande

The Value Challenge - Sunrise Over the Rio Grande

8x6in oil on canvas board.

On the Daily Painters site they have another great challenge - do a painting using four values.
I took a scene I am very familiar with and changed it a little bit for a better design.

  1. You managed to evoke early morning with this very limited palette. Bravo!

  2. This is stunning Julie!! The light on the water and the overall design is great!
