Artist's description:

Sunsets bring me a lot of inspiration and joy! It allows me to create my own palette of colors of my preference onto the page so it expresses a sense of warmth and feel towards the painting. I painted this beautiful lighthouse scene from applying my knowledge on portraying colorful skies and combining it into a creative visual.
Whilst I painted the sky from the top using oranges and pinks I imagined my brush flowing down gradually onto the paper creating a subtle pink, yellow pastel tone effect. At that stage I was amazed about how I formed those pastel colors using my brushing techniques. Using the colors I had captured in the sky I gradually worked down onto the mountain scape and lighthouse. I had created a silhouette finish on the mountains. I had applied shades of the sunset colors falling down onto the mountains with slight tones of green and brown to balance and enhance the colors. I painted the lighthouse in bits of white and red to make it stand out from the rest of the mountains.
The sunset reflections in the water turned out to be very effective. I applied my color palette beautifully into the water reflections which created a subtle pastel touch. The reflection stood out really well against the blue water and made it contrast to the pastel sky. The boat was composed perfectly onto the page and worked together with the charcoal rocks.
All the different color elements applied on every part of the image visually looked stunning. The most important aspect I admired the most was how I incorporated fine art and illustrative elements together and created it into a painting.
