Watercolor Painting Sunrise over The Three Sisters, Blue Mountains, Australia

Sunrise over The Three Sisters, Blue Mountians, Australia

Here is my latest watercolour painting. I think the title tells you all about it really. I particularly like this type of scene and feel it is just made for watercolour. It is mostly a wet on wet painting with warm and cool colours flowing into one another. The dark silhouette of the three sisters helps add to the feeling of space in the painting. As soon as I saw the scene I new I had to paint it!
The Three Sisters are a rock outcrop in the Blue Mountains, just outside of Sydney, Australia.
The painting’s dimensions are 56cm x 18 cm. It was painted on Arches Cold Press, 300 g.s.m. paper.
At some point I will post it as a demonstration on my Painting With Watercolors website, but not for a while as I need to wrap up a few other projects first.
Happy painting,

I agree, Joe. Watercolor is the best medium for a scene like this. Well done!
