When I wake up and look at this view with my morning coffee I know that someone is wishing me a great "Good Morning"!
Today was a gorgeous Colorado day with afternoon highs in the 60s and lows last night of 19. It is typical to have more than 40 degrees temperature change in one day. Tomorrow's high is to be 26 with an overnight low of 4! Knowing how cold it will be for the rest of the week, I went for a hike at the Garden of The Gods this morning!
I had a question about how I paint these skies from my deck, ie: do I set up on the deck, do I paint from the kitchen? Actually, I do both of these as well as use photo references. I think that whatever way works best for the artist, is the best way to paint! As I've said, some mornings I just sit with my cup of coffee and look, as these sunrises pass pretty quickly!
