|Lakeside by Twilight, pastel on paper, 14x18"|
There is something that is so beautiful and tranquil about sunsets, I can’t help to paint them every now and then. I’m not really sure where this is but it reminds me of the lake I live near so I decided that this was good subject matter. I also really liked the warm pink and violet tones in the sky and tried to reflect and cool them in the water. I also liked the combination of the rock and shrubbery in the foreground and tried to bring a little detail into the picture. I used my usual combination of Unison's and Ludwig's on Colorfix Suede paper, which I’m starting to like better despite the lack of tooth to this paper.
