Winter Sunset



graphite pencil 5" x 7" value sketch $25
watercolor 7-1/2" x 11-1/2" matted to 12" x 16" $60

This was today's painting. I thought I would show you the value sketch that I did for this painting. I try to do one for every painting but it is just a guide and I am free to take my liberties to change anything that I would want. You can see that I did this by making the barn smaller which made it further in the distance. I also wanted to create a mood so I made this a sunset.

Hi, Kathy you are really very kindly with my paintings, but I feel very, very.. jealous of your birds, hydrangeas and landscapes.
Wonderful sunset !.
I hope you can understand my horrible English I am practising it a bit.

Julian, you are too kind! Yes, I understand your english..just wish I knew some spanish. I had trouble getting off of your site yesterday. But that painting that you did was so enriched with colors. It was so awesome!!! Wish I could paint like that.
