Sunset at the Supermarket

Here's the view across the parking lot of the supermarket yesterday at sunset. 


Supermarket, gouache, 4 x 7 inches.
The painting sequence was a little different on this one. The sky is a transparent wash. I used ultramarine blue and burnt sienna gouache for the dark silhouettes. I painted tree darker at first, but I went in later with yellow and orange opaque gouache, painting the whole silhouette lighter as it approached the sun. 

I didn't have a camera at all to document the place or steps.

As Tom said, "beautiful". I love how you find the dramatic in the ordinary. The dark frame really sets off the effect nicely.
