I so love the monsoon storms that grace our Arizona Skies this time of year. The cloud formations make such beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The front of my studio faces east so each morning I can watch the sunrise. They are magnificent this time of year. In all the years I have been painting I have painted a plethora of sunsets but never a sunrise so this was the time. I love how it turned out.
All the vegetation was done with a fan brush, one of my favorite tools. To create the depth and density of the shrubs and trees I used varying hues of blue and green. After these colors dried I added a reflection of the sunrise colors to the tips of some of the bushes.
