View Full Version : Sunrise/Sunset

As we look forward to summer and long, relaxing days I think about cross country travel...early morning starts and late arrivals.
So here are examples from each end of the day....
a sunrise from a northern Ontario Provincial Park and a sunset from my favourite southern Ontario Park...
both in pastel with Rembrandts, Richeson, Senneliers.
C&Cs welcome!

These are beautiful Leslie - the skies and clouds are just marvelous and I love how the rich light peeks out from behind the trees in the second one. :-)

They are both lovely. I have to agree with Tammy, there is something special going on with the lighting behind the trees in the second painting.

Both are gorgeous, Leslie. I like how you kept the land quiet so the skies command all the attention.

Tammy, Karen and Donna..thanks for the kind thoughts.
These are not the flashiest scenes of dawn and dusk,
I was trying to capture that quiet moment just as the sun sneaks in/or out of view.

jlombardi and Moises, thanks for your comments.. some of the colour subtleties are lost due to my lack of photo skill!
