Ways to Sunrise Paintings

Here you will find some useful tips on how to create beautiful sunrise paintings.

  • Remember that it’s not always certain whether the canvas you are looking at represents sunrise or sunset. It can be confusing for many people. Since you can’t see how the sun moves, the only way you can actually tell what time of the day is depicted in the painting is by its palette. If you are used to the idea that colors are brighter in the morning and darker in the evening, forget about it. In most cases, it is true, but there are many exceptions, and you should be aware of it.
  • Build your palette around yellow, orange, pink and blue; these hues are typical for a sunrise. If you want your landscape to be accurate, you should mind the place of the sun. At sunrise, it will generally be higher than at sunset.
  • Don’t plan your picture in detail beforehand, just let the shades merge right as you paint and keep working on them until you achieve a perfect view. Keep in mind that the area around the sun should be lighter while the rest of the sky should be darker.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment. Start by making a set of small paintings depicting sunrise. That will help you to establish an appropriate palette and decide which of the hues work for you.
  • And lastly, if you feel that you can do better and some parts of the sky need to be improved, don’t be upset. You can easily fix everything by adding more details to your painting, like rocks and cliffs, flying birds and other interesting elements.
