Canadian Sunset - A Work in Progress

As I look out my window it is another cold Canadian winter day. The sun is lowering in the sky and night will soon be here.

The sky was painted with mixtures of Antwerp blue and alizarin crimson with a touch of new gamboge for the sun.

The trees on the horizon are various mixtures of burnt sienna, raw sienna and French ultramarine blue.

Now I have to decide what I will do with the foreground, but I will leave that for another time. I will post this painting at a later date once I have made my choice and the painting is further along.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
