cresent moon twilight/ making neutrals


10x10 pastel on BFK
Couldn't sleep so I left home before sunrise to paint the twilight. I stayed in the car because it was freezing and it was hard to see even with the inside light on. (I will have to get a caving head lamp.) It's funny I didn't touch my neutrals because their colors are not visible in the darkness instead I layered to make neutrals. I think I like that better.

Another beauty. Did you know when we went rowing on Lake Needwood that it would become your next muse? I love seeing you transform such an ordinary place into something so magical.

Hi Leah! Thank you. And no I didn't know that our row on the lake would lead to my next muse. Guess you will have to come back soon;-)

Hi B,

It's beautiful, so serene. Another great morning sky and I like the land mass, so close to the horizon. It evokes a large body of water, so inviting so peaceful.
I think I've used "so" enough in this comment.

Critique ... Gorgeous!
Your painting buddy.

I like that impossibly bright freezing clarity that only winter sunrises posses. It really feels like a brand new beginning. Well done!
