Sunset in North Carolina

My Nephew who lives in beautiful North Carolina took this reference shot and asked me if I can paint it.  I just loved all the beautiful colors in the sky that I took my oils out quickly.  Someday, I would love to do a sunset in pastels as well. .

  1. Truly breath-taking, Hilda! There is nothing that stuns me more than a sunset/sunrise. They make one stop in their tracks, so to speak. Love the silhouettes of trees and branches and all of that color!!!

  15. It's so nice to see a landscape from you. It must feel like child's play, since portraiture is so demanding. You are a master of both.
