Original Creation

Burning Sunset

Happyisland 26 Feb 2024

This painting was originally inspired by Buck Paulson, however I adjusted the composition, used slightly different shades of color and the knife was used extensively on the foreground including the tree leaves. A strong balance of light and dark draws the viewer towards the sun in the distance. This painting was completed on a 9 by 12 inch canvas, using a limited palette of soft oil colors.



Love this beautiful!

Thank you Sandy :)



Love how many colors are shining through and layered together!

Beautifully painted Daniel πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺI like the somewhat abstract way Buck starts his pictures. Good implementation and great colors

Nice composition and color choices!

Really lovely painting Daniel.

Thank you everyone for the kind words :) Dirk, I totally agree I enjoy how Buck fearlessly and abstractly starts his paintings. I’m always too careful. Really grateful I ran across him a few years ago. Just a kind man who is a gifted artist. .


Thank you :)
