The Sunrise paintings were painted on an access road alongside a highway. I began painting at almost the first hint of light in the sky. I was guessing at the color because I could really only see values on my palette (a good reason to always lay out your color in the same order). After about 15 or 20 min. the light had changed so much that I took out a second canvas, made a quarter turn to the right and began a second painting. I could now see my color better and already had piles of color from the first painting. I love doing these shorthand, speed studies, no time to think, just react. Total fun.
