Sunset Reflections 12"x16" Pastel

Sunlight on the water drew me to create this painting with it's strong contrasts versus vivid colors...For this painting I chose Kitty Wallis sanded grey paper and Terry Ludwig Southwest Sunset Colors for the vivid oranges, reds and yellows...I greatly enjoyed interspersing the vivid colors in with the beautiful greys of the water and it's horizon... I painted this because it is a subject I enjoy.


  1. this is one of my favorites, Ellie. The colors are stunning, and the scene is so serene. It's one of those "I wish I was there" places.

  2. Thank you Carol for your beautiful comment concerning Sunset Reflections. It is one of my favorites too. Ellie
