Nebraska Players in process and...you guessed it...another sunrise

I'm moving down with the Nebraska Players. I want to cover the canvas before I move in for perhaps more layer of color, defining the crowd just slightly as I think this piece will work nicely under the Memorial Stadium painting. I am playing with skin color and next will tackle their behinds...:) I think I need to work on the shape of the helmet in the center...it is just a little off, but that will be after I lay in my base colors. Damon didn't want player names on this so it would be more timeless, so I think just an impression of them will work fine.


I got up this morning and actually walked up the rocks behind my house. I am a little frustrated with my camera as it doesn't capture things exactly as they are, but it is close, so I had to share the beauty I woke up to today. Tomorrow we get more snow, so the scenery may be quite different.

Happy Day to you all!!

Looking amazing, Saundra, truly. Love that you are hinting at the names but not delineating them. A perfect compromise between reality and what your SIL wants. Good job! As always, love the views from your neck of the woods.

This is great Saundra - never understood the game, but love the way the painting is taking shape.

What time do you get up to take these wonderful sunrise pictures? (Sunrise here at the moment is 5.30am)

Thanks Liz...Yep, I'm the same as you...don't much get football, but this painting is rather fun. I get up about 5:30 some days and the sun isn't far behind.

I too like the way you have decided on handling the figures in a subjective way. Looks like you are off to a great start.
Sunrises and sunsets are so much a part of my life and art that I do enjoy them. I am always going to them as painting projects.
Keep posting them.

Thank you Gary...I will continue to post whatever beauty God gives us! Any photo I post is open for anyone to paint if you feel inspired!! I'm off to try to finish these guys...Hopefully will have enough sun to photograph it and post soon!!
