Sunrise & Sunset

Following a run of poor weather and  heavy showers overnight, this morning dawned clear to the west over the Atlantic, while a line of slow moving squalls refused to budge from inland blocking the rising sun. Not for the first time, cloud towards the east had frustrated my attempts to paint early morning sunlight falling on the cape.  But perseverance eventually pays off ; this time a brief gap in the clouds allowed just enough light to fall on the landscape for a few moments, and I was able to quickly touch in the effect, having completed the initial blocking in of the sketch. As I finished, a shower passing overhead produced just enough rain to generate a brilliant rainbow, cloud and rainbow marching together out over the ocean towards the Scilly Isles.
