Sunset Orange

"Sunset Orange" 11 x 14 Pastel on Wallis

I've been studying some of the more colorful work of landscape painter, Kim Casebeer. I love her use of oranges, yellows and reds. Her neutrals are also stunning.

Here is my attempt to replicate that special mood she creates at sunset. I started painting it yesterday on a piece of Wallis sanded paper that I washed off. (The original painting on the Wallis didn't work!) Finished this afternoon at the studio.

We have a new sign at our studio, made by June's Dad. The outside of the studio also got painted a nice sage-y brown. We also have new numbers on our unit, the door painted, and a new light fixture. We're moving uptown!!

Cindy, great job on that sky! I love the red at the bottom and the highlights on the trees.

This is just gorgeous! I need to try some of these colors on one of my variations. Thanks for the inspiration!
