I love painting crimson skies, sunrises and sunsets being one of my favourite subjects to paint from life. Each poses a different challenge and is fun in its own way.
This is one such sunset that I painted last week. I planned to paint the clouds during sunset, my goal was to capture the sun rays piercing the clouds at that time of the day. However, it was a near clear sky when I got out. Just when I was about to return home disappointed, I spotted these houses in the opposite direction. Some terrific light bouncing off them, they were a delight to the eye.
This landscape is painted in a very loose impressionistic style with bold and vibrant brushwork. The painting is energetic and will draw the viewer in.
I have captured the colours in the painting as accurate as I could, but I always say they are way better in person.
Any questions, just write in! :-)
