"Sailor's Delight" 16x20 oil on panel

"Red sky at night, sailor's delight".  An amazing sunset on Lake Champlain.  I'm trying to decide if this one is finished.  Seems you can work forever on a sky.  This photo shifts very gray and flat.  In person there is much more vibrancy.  Hmmm -- I guess I'll decide tomorrow.  Sleep on it.

  1. It looks idyllic. A painting's true color is so hard to capture in our images I think.
    It's certainly been perfect weather for painting outdoors. Good to see you are enjoying the plein air process as well.
