Pumped up the color even more in this sunset by toning the entire panel with napthol red and letting bits of it show through here and there. I have to say that compared to the first one I did with much more subdued color I like this one better. While the color is obviously pushed and "unnatural" when I look at this one I actually get a more authentic feeling of "sunset"compared to the other one. So perhaps it is necessary to push the color sometimes to really capture the "feel" of something.


Sorry the photo isn't all that crisp and clear. We've had snow and then freezing rain and now back to snow, so no photographing outside in natural light, hence the not so great photo.


Happy Winter Solstice, we're now expriencing the shortest day of the year, the beginning of winter and the beginning of days getting longer, yay!
