I was in the mood for a sunset this morning. Steve at Shooting My Universe has graciously allowed me to use his photographs as references for my paintings (thank you Steve!). I recently came across this one and knew I had to paint it.
I scanned this painting and for some reason my scanner always makes blues appear more green than they actually are. The blue is more of a real blue, and the streak of pink and orange in the middle is a little more subdued than it appears. But you get the point anyway. :)
It was done on pastelbord and completed with soft pastels. I used a few Mount Visions and Senneliers for this little painting. This is the first time that I've done a scene like this in a 5 by 7. Usually when I do water and skies I like to work big, but I felt like recreating this in a smaller size today.
Have a great afternoon! :)
