"Hot Evening"

"Hot Evening" - Oil on Raymar Canvas Panel - 12" x 16" - $150

"As a fellow artist and I were returning to Cayucos from a day of painting, we took a different route and found this scene as the sun drifted down. With the promise of dazzling red-orange light, we began our paintings and added the effect at its height." --- SFG

For short-lived lighting effects, you must anticipate the change and have the painting developed enough to concentrate on the change when it comes. This is difficult because you often don't know whether it will get better or will fade, but with practice, it becomes a rewarding effort.
