First Sunset

First Sunset Watercolor Doodlewash

My first attempt at a real sunset. I just went for it without thinking too much as the thought of doing it sort of terrified me. All the pros make clouds look so effortless but they are actually quite challenging. But watercolor in any form is just sort of pretty so you gotta love this medium!

      Thank you so much! I wasn’t sure if it looked good or just a little crazy. But sometimes that can be good as well. Appreciate the comment! 🙂

    Pretty good for a first attempt – you kept the colours fresh.

    I like the orange near the horizon. Not bad for a first try!
