Moving along to sunset, here are a couple more studies. Again, they're not completely finished as they need more glazes. I'm attempting to do observation work to capture the time of day and the many colors it produces. And the best way to do that is to simply go outside and observe. Also, color memory work is important. I intend to keep a color journal and sketchbook in order to record what I observe as quickly as possible on a small scale. This is a frontlit scene with the sun behind the viewer, the moon starting to rise in front.
