sunrise at Ft Lauderdale Beach with fisherman waercolor

I actually saw the sunrise this morning! Painted this watercolor of the colorful sky over the ocean at Ft Lauderdale Beach. Several fishermen were out on the beach at 6AM and I added one of them to my painting.

Watercolor Technique

The palm trees were very dark against the bright morning sunrise. There were a few birds around so I added a few of them too. Using an Arches cold-pressed watercolor block in a 7″ x 10″ size with a wet into wet technique for the sky. When the first step was dry I did the palm tree, beach and the fisherman.

Sunrise is beautiful at the beach. Those colors are only seen at that time of day. Every morning is a unique sky filled with colors. How many sunrises have you seen?
