TMC #30, Before Sunrise

For this 20 minute challenge painting, I was trying to capture the look of the night just before dawn, as the sky was beginning to lighten in the east behind the mountain..  Lost the yellow glow of the light next to the building and a bit of the trunk in the large tree on the viewer's left.  Still I like this fast study.

Like it? Oh, Ann, you are selling yourself short on this one. I LOVE it!!! I wish I had painted this - it deserves a mat and frame.

Teresa said...

Ann you're superproductive these days! :D
This one looks great, even if you lost some of the yellow, really really good IMHO.

I too like this one Ann, I really love the style you painted this in.

Rhonda, Teresa and Nora, thank you all very much. These 20 mins are great for working on areas one wants to improve, aren't they.
