A View From My Window #3
This is another Arkansas sunset done "semi" plein air from my "studio" window. I started the painting last night AFTER I had taken a digital photo. I finished it up this afternoon using the photo. The sun had dropped below the horizon so the foreground looked very dark in the photo - I could see it well last night. But I didn't need the clutter of the foreground for this "quick" rough painting.
Even after laboring over the sky today, I still didn't capture the color! At least I caught the essence of the colors. Or at least I think that I did.
