Canadian sunsets

Arches, 38 x 28 cm

Arches, 38 x 28 cm

It has been a busy and quite exhausting week for me, so I needed to get back to painting with something fun. What can be more rewarding than doing sunsets wet-in-wet. So I dug out a few reference photos on the subject...

The first one above is a scene from the west coast that I painted years ago, only now I did it in a larger size and with good materials. The second, of the Great Lakes area... well, I had too much colors left on the palette from the first sunset.
