Sunset for Color___6x8 oil study on linen panel__$190, unless you were in the workshop ;)
You need to read yesterday's post to understand the context, but this sunset was painted on the first day of the workshop I just taught in Fredericksburg, TX. ...As the class prepared to paint the FOLLOWING day's sunset, I had everyone pre-mix the sunset colors, using this painting above as reference. One could assume that a new day would bring a totally new sunset, and new colors, too...but summer days in Texas are consistent: hot, bright, humid...I knew the colors would be thee, but the patterns of clouds and distribution of these colors would be new....
In all the many days I painted early or late light at the FARM, no there were never two alike!!!
