This picture was taken in the morning at a softball field I play at. Softball is my life and a softball field is where you can find me if I am not at school. I thought this sunset was beautiful and the fact that it was by my softball field made it better and absolutely perfect for this project.
What do you find most successful about your piece and what might you change?
I really enjoy the dark tree line I drew at the bottom I think it brought the whole piece together and made it obvious that the top was of a cloud. I also enjoyed the color scheme that was in the sky, it worked very well with the water colors. What I did not like about my piece was the fact that no matter how much water I added or how many time I tried to go over it there were clear lines of where I painted.
What medium did you pick and why? I chose water color because I thought it would blend nicely and would make the colors look more natural together. When painting a sky it is important that the clouds kind of flow together and I thought I would be able to best do that with the watercolor.
