View from my window GLOWING SUNSET©


One of a series about "View from my window"

"Le paysage n'est pas que le "miroir de l'âme."
(The landscape is like the mirror of the soul)
Avec un clin d'oeil amical a Nelly!

This painting shows a fierce sky with an intensity of darks, yet the lush warm hue of the reds and yellow tones seem to warm the painting up, in which the top and bottom balance each other out. (I used at least about 10 different reds!!)

I like the intensity of this dramatic sky, contrasting the low dark horizon with the mysterious silhouettes of the rolling hills of Pennsylvania.

I want the viewer to feel the power of the setting of the sun below the rich bright western horizon, and see the atmospheric glow and coloring of the evening near the horizon, as the sun sets, just before the sky will become dark and the night will begin.
You wish it would be a never ending beauty...

Another good work Olga. Intensity certainly describes the feel of this painting.
