Fire on the ocean - Cape PointSave Favorites
This is my interpretation of one of the magnificent sunsets of South Africa where I lived for a number of years. I paint what I love. It is pastel on Sait P500 sanded paper.

Judge's Comment: "A stunning pastel painting, 'Fire' is a good example of controlling values, keeping them low and varied, in order to support the main area of focus: the setting sun. A careful melding of muted gray-blue hues surrounds a burst of golden 'light.' There is also the illusion of depth, a result of careful observation and keeping with principles of perspective; color sweeps over the sky in a movement that spans the far horizon to just above us."
