This painting is based on the sky study I did on March 11th.
I wanted to portray a peaceful feeling that shows the few minutes of dramatic color right before the sun is all the way up and everything is brightened.
As you can see I toned down the sky from the study to help create the peaceful feeling I was going for.
I painted a woman walking her dog for the human interest side to the story. It also gave me a chance to practice painting reflections.
