Yellow sunrise

Started with a black canvas. I wanted to practice getting a brighter sky on black canvases and this us what came out.

Love your sky, how did you do that? what colors? Your highlighting of trees & bushes is amazing

MHK - I put the colors in a rainbow starting from the middle left.
Indian yellow, yellow ochre, az crimson, pthalo blue, and burnt umber. Then I took white and started blending from the indian yellow out through the other colors several times, cleaning brush each time. Bob does this color combo on a couple episodes. pretty much lost all the Indian yellow. but in retro spec, the white glow brings out the mountain that much more. Thanks for the compliment.

VERY exceptional painting due to its highlighting and colour choices!
You also created quite some depth in there which brings out all the painted elements.
