Original Creation

Morning Glow

Sharon 07 May 2022

I painted this from a photo that my niece took in Alaska. I hope that you enjoy 😉.



I included the reference photo.

Nice job! Very colorful sky!

That is an amazing photo to to work from, Bob would definitely approve. The biggest thing of note is the visible streaks of paint in the sky which are distracting. Was this a reused canvas?

Sadly it is a reused canvas, ,that I purchased. It's the first time using a canvas that was used. I definitely think that using a clean new canvas is better. Oh well live and learn..... but that is what I love about painting, trying something new while experimenting with something old. That being said I think I'll stick with the new canvas from here on.

OK, used canvases are good - perhaps a quick rub down with some sand paper to smooth over the bumps would work? I have done this with practise canvases where the paint has built up. I just make sure I don't rub too hard.
