Crazy sunset in Båstad.

"Båstad Sunset", 23x31 cm

Here speed is of the essence. Ive got to be quick and trust my color mixing and drawing, relying more on instinct and gut feeling than careful planning and tentative blending. I work frantically because the light is changing so fast that something that just a few minuets ago was bright orange, can now have become a dark purple. It keeps you on your toes to say the least! The sea was an amazing turquoise and orange, whilst the sun was a bright red. More sunsets in the future, that's a promise! The photo doesn't really do the painting justice if i do say so myself (and I do!)
