Sunsets have captured the imagination of artists for centuries. They’re emblematic of romance and put the astonishing beauty of nature on full display. They offer us the perfect opportunity for honing our painting skills. With sunsets, we get to really learn about light and color while rekindling our inner sense of awe and whimsy.
Pastels give us bold, beautiful color at our fingertips so sunsets are the perfect subject for pastels.

A bit of study will be helpful in creating more
convincing paintings that combine realism and a
personal artistic vision. John F. Carlson described
aerial perspective as the third dimension; the
primary means of creating a sense of space in an
otherwise two dimensional plane. Applying a bit
of knowledge of aerial perspective, some study of
how light scatters, how reflections behave and how clouds are structured all lend
authenticity to a painting.
This peaceful and beautiful scene is a simple composition yet has quite a bit of complexity for the artist to delve into. The sky has beautiful subtle shifts of color and value. The edge of the lake with the shimmering lights and little structures are challenging but will add an element of humanity and nostalgia. The reflections will play a leading role in this scene, so depicting them simply and accuratey will strengthen the overall impression.
Creating drama and mood in the landscape is very much a part of what motivates us to paint, but capturing these fleeting moments that we experience can be a big challenge. What’s more, they can come across as trite and amateurish if we’re not careful. In this lesson we will tackle a moody panoramic sunset.
Once we have some tools at our disposal we can begin to push the limits of those tools and use them in more expressive ways. I’m constantly pushing the boundaries of my palette and asking myself “what if?” This is where we can build a bridge between our knowledge and our emotions. We can use flashy and sultry hues. We can use color in a realistic or symbolic fashion. We can push color and even invent it.
