Prayers answered though. Beautiful change in the clouds from gray to pink to purple as the first light in the sky showed itself. These sunrise paintings are done fast and furious. I usually have about 10 minutes to get the light and color in and then it fades from the sky. After that it is just a matter of refining what I have on the canvas. Although they may not be the most "finished" paintings, I love the freshness of these sunrise studies. And they are a great way to shake away the cobwebs :)
