My favorite place for sunset viewing is on a rooftop. More specifically, we have a rooftop deck on our row home that makes the perfect setting for such things, assuming the weather cooperates. There really wasn’t a great way to illustrate today’s prompt without doing a background of some kind, which is uncharacteristic for me. I love detail, and backgrounds tend to be more abstract. But, I attempted to create one today to illustrate this idea. This was a loose, fast and furious one as I didn’t have a lot of time today, but it was fun to splash paint around to see what happens. Also, I figured I’d toss in a glass of wine since it was the runner-up for yesterday’s prompt and is usually present while I’m watching my rooftop sunset.
For those of you who actually visit this website in a browser, you may have noticed that it’s gotten a bit of a redesign. This was also part of my lack of time today. For months, I’ve been wanting a search link fixed in the header, since this site has become rather full of content, and it’s become difficult to remember what’s here, even for me. Still more tweaks to be made, but now you can easily search for anything your heart desires on Doodlewash! So, that much was done, but I’ve no time to write more this evening. I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful time, looking out into the distance as the sun sets from wherever you love to do that most!

Love it, great job!!
Thanks so much, Richard! 😃
wow! I love the sky! very free and full of atmosphere. I can feel the ambience Charlie 🙂 + Cheers, debi
Awww thanks so much, Debi! 😃💕 It has been so long since I painted a sky! 😊 hehe…glad you liked it!
I really did! and thought, Gee! you should do more!!!
I was surprised to see a background with your wonderful,glass of wine. This is a wonderful background, you should do more.
Thanks, Teri! 😃💕 I usually choose details, so backgrounds lose out (not enough time!), but I decided to go fast and loose this time! Hehe
A wonderful surprise background. Lovely.
Thanks so much, Jodi! 😃💕
That’s perfectly romantic. Breathtaking stuff, right down to the abstract skyline 😉 How I’d love a rooftop deck now. I suppose I’d get lynched if I didn’t list anywhere on the Broads as being my sunset spot.
Someone’s had the decorators in! Love what you’ve done with the place!
Thanks, Jacob! 😃 Glad you liked this one…been a long time since I abstracted anything…hehe…so I’m glad you liked the effect. And yes!! I remodeled! It’s going to take a bit of time to get all the tweaks made, but went pretty smoothly so far!
I like your changes to your blog, Charlie! Something I need to do… 😉💕 And what a beautiful painting of a sunset to enjoy with a glass of wine! Cheers friend! 🍷😍
Thanks so much, Jill!! 😃💕 Glad you liked this one! And yeah…I’ve been waiting for a template to appear with the features I wanted and one finally did! Wasn’t sure how much would break in the transition, but it wasn’t too bad. I never know who many WordPress friends actually see each other’s actual blogs anyway! 😉
Well, charlie, you know I visit regularly via my smartphone. New theme works well, including the menu and search. I have to say I was tickled when I came across your Manifesto — All I could think of was Karl Marx and thought, nah, that’s not what Charlie’s about! Lol. 🌏
PS: Your doodle is so romantic!
hehe… thanks Janina! 😃💕 Yeah it’s more of a happy fun manifesto than anything political! Lol Glad you liked it and glad the new site works well on your phone!
Lovely – and the blog looks terrific.
Thanks so much, Sharon!! 😃💕 Glad you like the new blog look. It ate into my painting time, but luckily it’s done and today shall return to normal! Hehe
Oh yes, I can picture this, wine in hand, stunning view, night approaching 😀 I love that you have a search option, on a couple of occasions I tried finding one of your past posts…I googled it! But a search tab makes it super easy, yay 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Thanks so much, Rebecca! 😃💕 Glad you liked this one…I was in a bit of a rush. And yes! I had the search option but it was buried or scrolling off the screen. Had to hack it a bit to make it work in mobile but seems to be working now! 😃👍🏻
I tested it today to find one of the review posts. I need to buy some brilliant gold Holbein, lush!
Love this a sunset on a rooftop!
The painting looks different from your other ones. So I noticed how important a background can be; especially in atmosfphere and in this case the sunset feeling was much stronger with.
Though the main character here stays the glass of red wine, accompanied with a warm feeling.
One thing I was wondering how would it be with two glasses!
Thanks so much, Margriet! 😃💕 Glad you liked this… this is more my urban sketching style I started with. Super fast and more abstract. It’s definitely a better scene with two glasses! 😉hehe
Nice work I love the watercolor to illustrate your favorite way to see a sunset and a rooftop is a great place! And congratulations for the new layout and design of your Blog! Cheers! <3 😉
Thanks so much, Carolina! 😃💕 It was kind of a rushed day to do all of that and still make a post! Lol Glad you like the new blog. Still some tweaks to be done, but I was just happy nothing was destroyed in the transition! Hehe
Love the painting, Charlie – always good to do something different! I love dramatic skies.
Thanks so much, Tom! 😃Glad you liked it… not something I do much anymore, so it was a bit of a challenge!
Love the background! Very cool to see your take on a sunset and skyline, they look amazing. And the new site is pretty spiffy as well!
Thanks so much, Annie! 😃💕Glad you liked this one… it’s been forever since I painted a sky… I need a bit more practice! hehe… And glad you liked the new site! It’s gone smoother than I expected in the transition, but still lots of little tweaks to make!
The perfect place to watch a sunset and enjoy a glass of wine. I feel relaxed just looking at this scene.
awww…. cool! I have wine next to me again, but not on the roof this time… hehe! Glad you liked this, Susan! 😃💕
A roof deck, a sunset, and wine…perfect! (K)
Doesn’t get any better than this! Thanks, Kerfe! 😃💕
