pastel painting of a late afternoon on the beach

Pink Gloaming

Today’s sky painting is the 4th in a series of 21 that I’m doing as a result of a wonderful mini workshop with Karen Margulis

I remember being on the beach in the late afternoon when I took the picture that this painting is based on. I was there with a few friends and we just didn’t want to leave yet. The sun went down behind us and then the real fireworks started. All the contrails came into high relief against the blue and pink and aqua in the sky. The sand glowed orange. It was wonderful.

I’m looking forward to being back in Michigan, hanging out at the beach for sunsets and then painting them, every one that I can.
