The sunset in this painting was created by moving wet yellow, magenta, and orange paint in large, runny drips. Drip painting allowed the paint to form fingers that expand the light of the sunset into the cool sky.
I wanted to capture the rich, vivid light of a warm sunset against the cool pthalo blue mountains that are the first in line contrasting flatlands. An old dirt road, leading to the mountains, and fields are in the foreground.
Large green drips suggesting lush fields run down the canvas below the yellow and magenta sunrise made of splattered paint.
