Missouri Dawn

Missouri Dawn

This was done at the end of a very long day. I went with several others from work on a one day trip to Chicago. As we drove to St Louis, it was early dawn and a sliver of a moon was shining above the snowy landscape. After getting home at 1o pm I attempted the paint the scene. I was very frustrated that I could not get the depth of color in the sky that I wanted. I had run out of my nice Arches paper, and this paper would just puddle the paint. So I went back for the next two nights adding color. But I am not happy at all with the results. I need to try this one again - I think it could be a very nice painting if I do it larger using good paper.
