Gallery | Sunrise and Sunsets in Pastel

The drama of a glowing sky at sunrise or sunset inspires awe. And where there’s awe, there are artists. In the June 2012 issue of Pastel Journal, three landscape painters (Lee A. Kimball, Becky Johnson and Stan Sperlak) share their insights and secrets for capturing these dramatic displays in pastel. Enjoy this web-exclusive gallery of these artists’ spectacular renderings of the sun.
