Sunsets

Still working on capturing those pretty sunsets. We’ve been having an unusual amount of them lately – must be the changing weather that’s giving us so many lovely clouds to catch the sun with. This time I spent a little more time picking my colors and less time running around trying to find just the right spot – and I’m much happier with the results. I also had a bigger sketchbook and wider variety of brushes which probably helped. And I remembered to clean my paint wells before I started and cleaned my brushes more often while painting and generally just did a better job at following those basic watercolor codes that I keep dismissing until my paintings turn out messy and then go slinking back to. I guess the hardest lesson to learn is to use the knowledge you’ve already got.
