Setting Sun

Setting Sun
Oil / Canvas
26" x 14"

Decided to return to a batch of photos and paint this scene that I've had in the back of my head to paint. In this painting I learned that I could gray down my yellow without it going to green with the pile of left over white that I mixed together from a previous painting. The gray was about the same value of the yellow and it was warm so it didn't cool down the yellow to much. I've been getting in the habit of keeping piles of grays on my palette. They are really great harmonizers.
