Night at the DeYoung

Acrylic on Canvas Paper

Painted from a photo (too cold to sit out here at night), but I really like the super bright lighting on the trees there against the smoky sky, just as the sun was disappearing.  Again, I picked something I thought would be easy which turned out to be a real struggle. I should really have done a second, because once I've worked out a lot of the issues it's usually easier to do a better version right away. I just struggled on this so much I didn't have the energy to attempt a second one.
