Rosy Billows (enlarged)


Rosy Billows, L. Daniel, 18 x 18

Back to the big skies. I painted this piece for my big sky series back in the spring, but I forgot to photograph and post it. So, here it is, just a little bit late. You may remember the small study. The scene is from West Texas in the Davis Mountains - a beautiful, end of day performance.

Nobody paints sunsets like you do.
So awe inspiring.

I can feel what it would be like to be there.

Really amazing sky view, and the hillside glows perfectly. Great work!

The vastness of the sky is mesmerising, as is the firey glow of the clouds. Brilliant work Laurel.

Beautiful, Laurel. Love the hills and the sense of scale they give the scene. Big sky, indeed!

You really have captured the rosy sunset so well. A lovely painting.

Very nice, Laurel. I find it challenging to keep trees from "growing" when I paint them in broad landscapes like this. You've suggested them so effectively and kept them the size they need to be to play the supporting role in this sky painting.
