Golden Sunset in a Stormy Sea

This painting came together in a way I just loved! Most of it is in palette knife technique The golden section of the sky is in brushing. It is a small size, however I am looking at it and I think I want to create it in a larger work of art in a similar vein. What do you think?

What do I think??? I think I love it! This painting reminds me of the dark sea-just before a storm- I've seen this very thing at the Cape. Really stunning Karen.

Thanks to all, Maria, I took your cue, from the up and coming color palettes which are already my favorite tones!

Hi Karena
Love the colors and the mood in this piece of artwork. Large scale canvases seem to be all the rage now. You have you finger on the pulse.
Kind Regards

It's lovely! My grandmother was an artist and my oldest (almost 7) says she "is" and artist. I'll have to show her your amazing work.

Thanks too for dropping by my blog.

This is really quite beautiful. I'm glad I came across it (via linkwithiin). I'll eagerly check back to follow your work. I am a gray landscape sort of girl and this really caught me eye. Wonderful work. Marija
