Okinawa Sunset

My friend asked me to paint a picture of a sunset she had taken in Okinawa. This was my first attempt at a watercolor sunset. It was really quite difficult for me. But I enjoyed painting this picture.


It was painted on smooth watercolor paper.
Any feedback would be really appreciated.

Hi Leanne:
Very dramatic!Makes me picture a dragon tearing across the sky. I like your use of wet on wet, and the contrast of soft and hard edges.
Great painting.

Fantastic!! I love the dramatic atmosphere you portray in the gathering clouds. This painting tells me astory - I'm imagining something ike the calm before a storm.

Very nice!

Hi Leanne

I love this. The colours are great and you have achieved a really dramatic effect. I'm struggling with watercolours, so admire you all the more.
Well done!
