Sunset on the Pacific coast of Nevada.....

All Artrage 2.5, (9 layers) except I had the beach too bright for the
setting of the painting, so I used Photofiltre to darken it.

My thanks to Peter Pinckney for his tutorial on water.
I'm still subpar with it, but, I'm making progress.

Looks like I've found my Margaritaville. Looks awesome! I particularly like the tiny bit of light the shines on the water near the sun.

Going to check out that tutorial of Peter's for sure!

Cheers! :)

Very nice BB! I like the subdued colors (for a sunset) in it. I like the little dog as well!:D:D

A little story behind that little area of white light...
When I realized the beach was too bright for the conditions of the rest of the painting, I exported the layer and used Photofiltre to darken it, then imported back into AR. As I was using the eraser to erase all the white background that comes along with the import, I simply missed that area around the Sun.
I started to go back and erase it, then after looking at it.. decided it looked good, and left it there. :):)
So, I can't take credit for painting that part, but I will take credit for recognizing what looks good. LOL....

Thanks Alan!

Love 3d effect of the horizon...i like how the sun is peeking from the horizon as if to say... "Good bye buddies... see you tommorrow."..Lovely colors and the dog makes me smile... seems he is a bit mesmerized by such a beauty....

Many thanks. I tend to like to paint tranquil settings. I guess because I enjoy being in them so much.
