I want to describe a situation when the light from sky passes through something.

Are these correct and natural?

1. The gray of the clouds seeped through the drapes, casting the room in a dreary, diffused glow.

2. The crimson of the dying twilight filtered in through the window, highlighting loose strands of her brown hair which looked auburn in the light.

I think you should keep things simple. How about this?
