Sunset Sky with Tree Silhouettes

This was my demo for my Wednesday night class. I promised the class I would share it when I finished it. The reference for this painting was a photo I took near Deception Pass at sunset overlooking the Straight of Juan de Fuca, Washington State.
When you paint a beautiful sunset sky with nice reflections it can be very challenging to add the dark silhouetes tree shapes in the forground. But quite often the drama is worth the challenge!
The painting is 11" x 15" Arches 140# CP paper using Daniel Smith Watercolors painted with my 1" Susie Brush and a #4 rigger.
