Early Spring Sunrise by Nambroth Early Spring Sunrise by Nambroth
This is kinda simple, I know. This piece was painted for Painter Magazine as part of an instructional tutorial I wrote for them. I was asked to write a 5 page tutorial on how to paint a scene like this in low lighting. It will be in one of their upcoming issues (I'll update here when I find out which one) so be sure to check it out!

The scene is intentionally like the one in December Sunrise.
I was asked to recreate the same setting/clouds/sunrise conditions and illustrate how to paint it. Out of respect for the person that commissioned December Sunrise I changed the background enough that it isn't identical.

Perhaps later when I have more time I'll go back and play with this one a bit more. It was done over 60 hours and many sleepless nights in a 5 day deadline, so it's not the best of my work, but hey I got it done! XD

Painted with the Oil Pastels in Painter (the article will tell you exactly how!) :}

Oh no I am not referring to you. Not at all! I'm sorry if it seemed that way. I doubt that the folks that steal my work create accounts here. They just click, save, and use it. I am always finding my work on eBay, people selling it printed on different things. :(
