Lorrie #10 - Vermilion Sunset for Earth Day 2011

Vermilion Sunset - watercolor, 12 x 14 inches
Celebrating Earth Day!! 
This was one of those unbelievably orange suns dropping into ocean haze along the rocky San Simeon (California) coastline. Who can resist trying to capture it somehow? I did a smaller "sketch" in a watercolor travel book (6 x 9 inches) and used that as the reference for making this one at home in larger format.
