    i painted this from a photo I took last year when we were in Maui. I loved the way the trees and people were silhouetted against the sky. This is one of my first paintings done outside of class. I tried to follow Patrick’s video called “Simple Sunset-East Coast Watercolor” so thank you, Patrick! I will attempt to attach the photo as well as my painting in case anyone would like to “give it a go,” as Patrick puts it.

    Technical difficulties are not allowing me to upload the painting in its vertical orientation! I swear I did not paint it the way it shows here.

    Nicely done. I like how you brought back the shapes in the shadows that just look black in the photo.

    This is really great! It looks like it would be difficult to paint, but you’ve captured the atmosphere so well and your figures are excellent. 😀

    Beautiful sunset painting. I can just imagine standing there sipping a cocktail and watching the sunset. Simply beautiful painting. I like the way you have left the sky holes through the palms to show the light coming through so important but often missed out. Gorgeous colours. Total success.

    I would have this painting on my wall. Just a happy reminder of good times.

    This is so lovely. The colours of the sunset are well done, not overly intense and I really like that There is a sense of detail in the trees even though they are in silhouette.

    Thanks for sharing!

    You have really captured the atmosphere of a seashore sunset, I like the silhouettes of the trees and the romantic feel with the couple watching the sunset, this is a lovely painting.

    Beautifully painted. Silhouettes are hard to paint in any medium, but you’ve done a wonderful job. The sunset colors are lovely, and the blackish green of the trees, figures, and foreground is a great choice over the black in the photo.
