This is that Wow type of sunset =) You know what I mean if you’ve seen one for yourself. We always hope to see that bright, vibrant pink sky at sunset but a lot of times they sky offers a more subtle type of beauty. Sometimes though when all the the components are present, there is an explosion of color above. That was my driving force behind this brand new painting.
The mountains are starting to be veiled in shadow, though you can still make out a lot of the rocky lines and shapes. The trees are beginning to blend in with the further away mountains but when you look intently, you can still see them standing on their own. But most of all, the sky commands your attention as you stand there realizing how just how lucky you are to be there at this moment, seeing what could be a once-in-a-lifetime moment, not knowing if you will ever see anything like it again or at least not anytime soon. I’ve had those moments and wanted to try my hand at capturing it in paint.
