Dunes & Red Sun

Illusive Red Sun.

A red sun that I awaited. Started in the dark, and the winds were ice-cold. The clouds were there and the red one showed its face.
As painters we need to turn ‘light’ into pigment, that’s the reason for value solutions that might differ from ‘what we see’.

If you want the sun to be red AND have it have the highest light, all other areas should be darker than that. That makes it difficult! I could paint this every day and not get bored, it’s so difficult to ‘catch’ it, that makes it all so fascinating.

And… there are ways around value contrast: color contrast.

And… then you’ll need a good photo of the painting :)

The actual painting looks better than the photo. My blue clouds are saturated yet not heavily contrasting, midtonish. My orange-red sun shines! 
The camera has the hardest time with midtones and red.

But it comes near.
