"Sunset ii", watercolour painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Sunset ii", watercolour painting, 7.5 x 11"
SOLD

This is the second sunset demo from my class on Wednesday morning. This time, I painted the clouds on dry, white paper, puddling in the colour, and then put the lower sky with the pale yellow in afterwards. When that was dry, I put in another layer in the lower sky of duller orange, leaving the bright yellow to shine underneath the clouds. The colours of the clouds are a bit brighter on this painting, because they were put on white paper instead of the yellow-orange of the previous post, but it was a bit more difficult to place in the sky colours around the cloud shapes. I think it is kind of interesting that both painting methods worked equally as well.

Enjoy!

This is beautiful! The colours are so vibrant you almost have to squint, just like when you see a real sunset.
