Kristin 77 & 78: struggling with sunsets
Last night the sky got all blue, with perfect pinky-purple alpenglow on the mountains. So I grabbed my paintbox and tried to catch it, knowing I was already late. Here are two attempts. The top on is my sketch while the sunset was happening, and the bottom one I painted later last night with the info from the observations I made in the top sketch and a photo, which gave me a better view of the geography of mountains, though didn't quite catch the colors. I know it's hard to catch the fleeting colors, but it is fun to try.
