Sunset 1 Speedpaint

Hello Journal,

I decided to quickly paint a simple sunset scene.  I find it interesting that in order to paint light, you must spend more time on your shadows.  Especially at sunset, because there is more life in your shadows than in the actual light.  The contrast between the two makes the light pop if the shadows are done correctly.
So, love your shadows!

And here is the speed painting.
