more sunsets and still lifes

Lately, I have been painting sunsets and still lifes.

I am finding it really relaxing and enjoyable, though I am unfortunately usually busy during sunset hours. Next week, however, I will be on vacation (family reunion!) and hopefully will get out during the evening to paint.

Strawberries are my favorite. It was hard to leave them there to paint, they smelt so good...

This was a fun experiment. I am not entirely happy with it, but it was fun and I learned a lot from it.

This is my least favorite sunset. The cityscape just didn't work out properly. The sky itself is also nothing special, and I'm pretty sure it's because I tried to work from photos. It's just not the same.

My latest sunset! The sky was an amazing deep glowing pinky red, and I just had to try and paint it. I'm fairly pleased with the results.
