Step 1) Dictionary.com

Step 2) Show your art. It would be much easier to help you if we knew what you had problems with.

Ok i do not have any sunrise/sunset pictures, I want to start one though. I just wanted some useful tecneaks but ok i'll draw something. But i don't have direct acsess to a scanner.

Dictionary .com?  tecneaks---technics
Sorry if i used the wrong word or spelled something incorrectly ::)
I actually did go to dictionary.com and looked up some of the words before i spelled them, but i guess i missed one or two.   :-[

My advice would be:
  • find a photograph of a sunset similar to the one you're imagining
  • find some kind of drawing/painting of a sunset in the sort of style you want to draw in
  • put them up side by side in front of you, and look at them while you draw
Other than that I really don't know. Like Jon says, it's very difficult to advise anything when we don't really know where you're finding the difficulty. What kind of style of drawing are you going for anyway - OFF or other?
