A return to these 1:3 ratio small pastels that I've enjoyed doing, with some landscape-format sunsets for this series. Nothing like some bright, over-the-top reds and oranges or warm pinks and muted corals to help with a creative slump, right?
Four sunset moments from four very different locations. There are plenty of art critics that believe sunset paintings are a cliche (did I mention this in the last post? I believe I may have) and border on kitsch, especially those with the sun in a setting position.
Sunset paintings are one of my guilty pleasures, kitsch or not.
And, here are a few recent photos of sunsets taken from our deck:
|April 11 - Altostratus|
