Sunrise at New Smyrna Beach
A recent Plein Air event took me to New Smyrna Beach, FL to paint with twenty other artists to support Cape Canaveral Beach National Park. I don't get to the beach often enough in the early morning to watch the sun come up, so I took advantage of this event and did a series of sunrise paintings. The morning sunrises provided me with various atmospheric opportunities to paint the sky. I enjoyed painting the sun shining through the clouds as well as the way light lights up the sides of the clouds. One morning I was able to catch the end of a thunderstorm that passed by earlier that night. I was on the way to the beach and thought I might not be able to paint because of the storm but was delighted to see it had moved offshore.
