Sunrise Study

Sunrise Study

6x8in oil on canvas board 100.

I have enjoyed a couple of beautiful sunrises recently and this one was yesterday. This is what I see from my deck; I feel so fortunate to have a view like this right outside my door!
Sunrise is not usually as intense in color as sunset but when I painted this I held back the color a bit because it was such a vivid orange, which even as I was looking at it, did not look real.
At this stage of the sunrise when the sun has not peeked out yet, the bushes are really dark shadow shapes with a slight glow from the bright sky catching the edges.
