Sunrise on Clear Creek, (SOLD) original oil painting


This is a commission piece of a work I posted on 10/23/07 , click on http://carolnelsonfineart.blogspot.com/2007/10/clear-creek-in-january-8x10-oil.html. The collector wanted the scene to be at sunrise/sunset. The reference photo I used was taken at about 1pm and I was facing east, so I imagine, had I been there at sunrise, it would have looked like this. SOLD

You have a great imagination! This is a solid composition, nice lead in, good contrast, and you kept your focal point the main thing at the same time! Brovo!

Thanks, Fawn. It is an interesting exercise for an artist to change the time of day and the lighting from the resource material. It's all about the light and how it affects various elements in the composition.

This painting was more beautiful in person than in the picture. It lights up my wall.
I have received many wonderful compliments from almost everyone that has visited my home. It really catches the eye.
Carol did a fabulous job and I feel very lucky to have it.
