Coquille Point Sunset

Coquille_Point_Sunset

  Sometimes things just line up.  Here we have sea stack rock
formations, setting sun, clouds, ocean waves and mist all in 
the right place.  As I spend many evenings walking on the 
beach, I am gaining some appreciation for those ancient people
who built Stonehenge.  This was painted from reference photos 
that were taken October 1st.  Now in December, the sun is
setting much to the left, or more south. 
  I am finding that soft pastels work well for capturing the 
blues, yellows and oranges of a sunset without mixing and 
making the sky green and gray.
