Painting a Sunrise and Clouds

Sunrise and Clouds

A beautiful morning with a lot of Clouds moving. Yes, it’s often ‘nicest’ just before or just after the rain.

The hard part is to paint the blue sky: but to NOT paint it blue :)

The great thing about this painting, in my opinion, is the rich and high clouds, especially the coloring of it all, the usage of a lot of yellow, also in the blue part. There’s a real sense of unity throughout the whole painting: Sky & Land united.

    Hi Roos,
    Your paintings are always beautiful to look at.
    I paint sometimes in aquarel and not in oil.
    So I don’t use your course in oil paint.
    But this course is à very good idea and I hope that you have success with it.
    Perhaps I can do it next year.

    Thanks Jose, yes it’s a great course with personal interaction. It’s also a try out. If people like it better without the coaching I will offer it seperately next time!

    I just LOVE the entire presentation and a glimpse of the “soul” behind the whole process of creating this painting – this is a wonderful promotion!
