The challenge of painting sunsets is progressing toward the abstract. I enjoyed painting the larger trees and leaving them as simple washes of beautiful purple. The shapes of the back trees and the sunset lights were painting in "negatively". Painting the negative shapes means that you are painting around the object and not the object itself to create the shape. For the foreground a warm initial wash covered by a cool top wash created just enough to create the snow cover.
Thanks for staying with my blog for these final few days.
