I would like to start my new day to start like this, to see this when I wake up. I would like for everybody to see something like this at sunrise. Wouldn’t that be great?
For now I have to do with my imagination ;-)

    And what a perfect day it is in your wonderful painting…..who glorious the sunrise is and the soft pastel colours. I would love to be here watching that sun becoming warmer and richer in colour and the sea light up……it’s sooooooooo pretty!!!! Heavenly light!

  • Thank you sweetheart, that’s a really sweet comment! Love to be there with you.

    Nice work Arie, I always have a little trouble using yellow in my skylines. (I end up with that unwanted green… LOL)

  • I know the problem Jim, but it’s of course worse when you’re doing water colours. Glad you like it Jim, thanks!
