'Sunset oval' has been on my list for a long while and was finally set to be painted this week. Since I had a wall only suitable for a giant painting, I used a budget quality canvas that was bigger, size 24"x32", then a normal size used for and by Bob.
This creation holds equal harder parts then easier ones. The sky is less difficult but getting clouds in remains one of my whoes. The mountain was really tough, hardly could bring in enough T-white to cover it all, that mountain kept eating my white. Evergreens were easy and so were the bushes but the reflections in the lake were a real challenge to me.
The dead tree was not really necessary and at first, I thought it just ruined my creation. That's the reason why I only painted one. In the end, the tree did fit in so in all, I'm pretty happy with this creation.
A total of 3,5 hours of relaxed painting, hope you will like it and please, read the article!
I uploaded two extra pictures. One without a flash being used, the other to show the size of my canvas painted in my dining room.
