Sunrise Series Continued

I'm back in the studio today after work flow was interrupted this weekend by a major snowfall for our area: all of 4 - 5"! Yes, laugh my northern friends, but this was a huge deal for us southerners. Our driveway and backyard are probably the steepest on our block, and we offered them up as Sled Central for any and all who wanted to tube or sled. So frozen fingers and toes not withstanding, most of the weekend was spent outdoors playing in the snow (and then trying to recover!).

I've got 2 more to do in this sunrise series. These will also be scenes of Cattlewash, Barbados, with the characteristic coconut trees. The colors won't be quite as intense as the first two - not all our sunrises and sunsets are spectacular! Shown here is the first wash layer on both. You can see outlines of resist around some clouds - this will ensure that their bright linings don't get obliterated by later layers of dye. They look a bit garish now, but the outlines won't be as pronounced when the resist is removed.
