I really enjoy the distinct colors in a sunset. When I think of one in Vermont, it is very strong colors such as violet and orange. The sunset is very apparent in the wilderness as well. Because of this, I created the background to show violet at the top and the exiting orange at the bottom. The girl is also covered by the orange glow and a tiny piece of the oncoming darkness appears near the top of her head.

A sunrise has a lot of similarities to a sunset but the shade vary a little bit. I feel there is more of amber in a sunrise and the color is darker. The dark night is also leaving and is mixing with the dark orange and amber. It forms a much lighter pink than the purple in the sunset. In a gothic cathedral, the light is reflecting through the stain glass, and the color of the glass adds to the color of the light. The amber fills the persons main view while leaving some darkness at the bottom.

The summer in the carribean is filled with lots of bright blues and light beige colors. The sky and water are a light reflective blue,to the point where it is almost refreshing just to look at. The ground is extremely light colored and adds to the brightness of the scene. The person absorbs most of the bright light and a little bit of the blue from the sky.

4. Winter afternoon just before the snow

The winter makes it very dark outside. The sky is grey with a little bit of the blue sky trying to break through the ugly color. This causes the two to mix a bit. It creates a dark and ugly shade of blue. The ground has the most light and is lighter than the actual sky. It is a light color but mixes with the grey shades as well as the sky. This causes an ugly light color. The scene itself is very cold and lonely. The girl picks up shades of grey with a little bit of blue.
