Part of a series trying to capture the changing light of a sunset. I was painting with some other artists, we were challenged to paint as many 1 to 5 minute paintings as we could before the sunset. We painted quickly and then scrambled to the next vantage point. Gouache on paper, 4 by 6 inches.
I did a small quick study for this painting on location but the view point was on top of a culvert that smelled of carrion and there are mountain lions known to be in the area. I completed this version in the comfort of the studio. Oil on board, 12 by 14 inches.
