ACEO - Rainbow Sky 1

It is another hot day with the temperature at 82F (28C) and the humidity making it feel like 90F (32C).

I thought I would like to paint a sunset today and I picked this one that I had started earlier this year (see posts on 18 April and 24 May 2016).

With a mix of burnt sienna and French ultramarine blue I painted in the rock and trees on the distant shoreline.

I added a touch of alizarin crimson and painted in the foreground rocks.

Lastly, I darkened the mixture and painted the pine trees on top of the foreground rocks and added a few reflections of the rocks in the water.
