Sunset painting, Pastel, 20" x 26"

"August's Last Blush"

I've been experimenting with pastels and watercolor recently. Clouds and sunsets have always intrigued me. I love the luminosity of watercolor and the intensity of pastels. I managed in this painting to bring both into play. I have no way of telling how this image will appear on your monitors, but the colors have subtle changes in hue and intensity. The opacity of the pastels played against the transparency of the watercolor makes for a good contrast and mimics the way in which clouds hover at different altitudes and sometimes work to mask the sun completely.

This painting when purchased is available double matted and comes with a protective sheet and it's own case to protect the image. Price is $575. Shipping is free. Email me if you are interested.

In a search for a pastel-colored sunset, I came upon your beautiful painting. I was hoping to find a sunset like the one I saw on my drive home today, and yours is very close. I will honor your copyright and not use it on my blog, but I would like to make a link, if that is okay. You have a lovely blog, full of beautiful work. I enjoyed my visit!
