During this painting session, the sky was applied with a mix of phthalo blue + white. Upper left corner had quinacridone violet added to the mix. In general, the sky is darker at the top and fades as it drops to the horizon line. The challenge in this scene - a sunset - is that the yellow/orange colors of the sunset had to be incorporated into the transition from the blue sky above to the very orange horizon.
This is the largest painting I've tackled to date. It is 3 feet tall x 4 feet wide. I'm using gallery wrap canvas, so I won't have to frame it.
