Painting the Afterglow of a Sunset on the Gulf Coast of Florida

Capturing Twilight in a Painting on Sunset Beach

 Afterglow, when your senses are surrounded by an amber haze after the sunset. In this painting I am experiencing the scene from behind sea oats and various beach foliage to compliment the scene.

The magnificence of nature is startling. I painted this from a smaller study I did of the same scene. I guess I figured one small painting didn't do justice to the enchantment of the afterglow. The larger canvas allowed me to use more expressive brush strokes and soft blending in the sky.
