We had a spectacular sunset while I was deciding what to paint for Day 25 of the 30in30 challenge. Trying to capture the moment with a camera was the first challenge. I did learn about a setting on my camera that allowed me to capture the vibrancy of the colors. But of course, the pictures are not the same thing as experiencing it.
I find sunsets very difficult to paint. Sometimes they flow nicely without any effort and other times I feel the effort of trying to achieve what I want. In the end, I have a painting…however it has turned out.
