Vasquez Rocks Sunset
9 x 12 x 0.25 in., oil on canvas hardboard
I painted this at Vasquez Rocks Natural Area in Agua Dolce, CA. I was there for a birthday get-together for a painter friend of mine. Ever year he picks a location and all of his painter friends come and have a plein air paint-out on his birthday. I was really glad to join the fun. I really loved the way the sunset was lighting the edges of the rocks as the sun dipped behind the hills. I also loved the challenge of trying to capture the head-on glare of the sunset. I hope I did it justice. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it!
