African Sunset #watercolor #KDAllegri #Arches

Yesterday I shared the two practice sunsets that I did in my watercolor class.  This is the completed piece.  These sunsets would really classify as quick studies because even at 8 x 10 this only took 10-15 minutes to do.  The darker colors are a mix of the colors used for the sky (Gamboge, Cadmium Orange, Naphthol Red, Ultramarine Blue) and Burnt Sienna.  Texture was added to the ground by scraping with a plastic knife.
