“When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Whereas the dark and mid-tones in watercolors may not appear particularly strong, one of the advantages of oil painting is the ability to achieve rich and deep dark and mid-tone areas. This allows an artist to create vibrant and stunning sunset visuals.
Like almost everybody I know, I love sunsets. During this preciously short period of each day the contrast between light and dark sharpens, details start to fade and the sky is illuminated with a myriad of melting colors and shades. This painting is all about blended colors and light

Behind the Canvas
A sunset lasts for only a few minutes but its beauty can endure for centuries when an artist uses it to create a wonderful work of art on canvas. Sunset paintings give warmth and charm to a room like no other work of art can. The vibrant colors instantly catch the eye. Sunset oil paintings also make wonderful gifts for a housewarming or grand openings.
Next time you need a great gift idea, consider a sunset oil painting rather than a coffee machine or a house plant… it will last a lot longer.
If you enjoy sunsets as much as I do, please see my accompanying paintings – Stark and African Sunset.
