use of neutrals in sunrise

5x7 pastel and watercolor on wallis
This is a study of the colors of sunrise and the use of neutrals to make light glow. Neutrals are probably the most important colors..they make paintings harmonize.

I must admit, this year I have not missed one day of posting.(YAY!) I have mixed my posts: some days I post my daily plein air warm ups and other days a studio painting or progress on a studio painting. Also I have loved posting interviews and been fascinated doing them! Next year is a new year and the blog will grow in new ways..

Beautiful sense of light and motion here, Loriann, and lovely use of neutrals. Congratulations on your prolific posting - your blog is a favorite and near-daily online destination for me.

You are the most dedicated and tenacious painter I know. No matter the weather or what else is going on in your life, you are out there - searching, seeing and interpreting. You are an inspiration to me each day. Thank you!

Thanks Kvan! It seems important to share. I certainly didn't learn all I know on my own. For that I credit other wonderful artists who shared generously...many too numerous to mention right here. Thanks about my blog. I look forward to my check-ins on your blog as well.

Hi Brian, I had no idea you visited so often! thanks for sharing your time. I just returned from a short jaunt to NYC and I visited NY Central Art Supply, due to your recommendation. I bought some new twinrocker papers...can't wait to try them!!!!!

Thanks Barbara your words mean a lot to me. You can ask my husband, tenacity is my middle name for better or worse! paint on!
