First Sunset




no longer available 


This study of a sunset in San Clemente was done as one of the weekly challenges on Daily Paintworks. I'm donating this painting to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The challenge was to paint the sky, which seems easy enough but I have some things to learn yet. I'm taking a workshop from Richard Robinson and this month is dedicated to painting clouds. Just what I needed. I was fortunate enough to have him choose my Hawaii painting (see earlier post below) for his critique last month. I learned a lot from it and am looking forward to many more workshops. I'm still going to post photos of my paintings in the local gallery but haven't gotten to that yet. I'll be getting another piece in another gallery this month. Stay tuned...
Have a great weekend!

Darling Girl,
Your work just gets better and better. That was a wonderful thing to help out those poor wet and cold people.
Stay warm,

Thank you both! I hope I can help. It's awful to see what they're going through!

What a glorious painting! I love the people in the foreground, with the magnificent sky engulfing sea and sand (and them, and everything!). I've been blessed to see a few sunsets like that in my life. You really got this right!

(Right in more ways than one! It's very good of you to donate proceeds from the painting to the Hurricane Sandy victims. Doesn't your heart just go out to them, insult to injury with the cold weekend coming up on them; not fair, as they've been through enough already!)

Jennifer you are a wonder! When I lived in San Diego, I often visited my friend Gaylee in San Clemente and we enjoyed the best sunset views!

PS Clouds are my nemesis as well.

Thanks Karena! I really never thought they were so difficult until I started learning about them. I haven't started my paintings for the workshop yet but I'm already learning a lot. Thanks so much for stopping by!
