Day Four of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. A colorful sunset inspired by a day last month where the trees in my yard at dusk had wonderful silhouettes against the beautiful colors of the sunset.

The sky was done wet in wet with all the colors blending.  After it was bone dry I went in and lifted with soft fabric painting brushes and toothbrushes and added some dark underbellies here and there.  The dark shapes were created with indanthrone blue and quinacridone burnt scarlet.  I love those two mingled.

As you’ll see over the next couple of days, I think I’m fascinated by portraying clouds…  stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.  I enjoy hearing from you!
