Greeting the day

Searching for something to paint today, I came upon a book of J. M. W. Turner paintings. I used one of his studies for the composition for this painting, but turned it into my own. This painting depicts the reverence and awe of nature that I find so important in a good friend of mine. Surrounded by the majesty of our planet earth he greets the last rays from the setting sun. This measures 8.5″ x 11″ on fine Arches watercolor paper.

    It looks a bit bleak and cold there (in the painting) – The last rays of the day in the winter do tend to look chilly I guess. 🙂
