“Appropriately named “Sunset Point”, this spot has found its way into several paintings, and I thought this view I caught coming back one evening in the canoe warranted another.  I never tire of the infinite variety of pine tree silhouettes we see around here, and you really appreciate them at this time of day.  The method is pretty straightforward here.  On a burnt sienna toned panel, I first worked on the blended sky, transitioning from blue and purple across to the golden yellow, echoing it in the water.  Once that dried, I could draw in the shorelines as a guide to painting those dark forms, to which I added a few subtle highlights to keep it from looking flat.  The swim raft added a needed accent.” -Peter Ferber
