Canyon Sunset

Mixed Media, July 2009
Original. 74 x 34″ 

After the summer in my first teaching job, I wanted to continue experimentation into post impressionism primarily using a palette knife to paint several canvases in acrylic. I remember reading that the painter Vincent Van Gogh would paint using different palette knives, the paint tube itself, or with short jabs from a thin brush. 

In this painting, I wanted to paint from an old memory of the panhandle sunset I grew up with similar to how Van Gogh started his later paintings. I used to have evening classes in Canyon Texas and would often see the sun set over the distant plains as I made the commute. I originally used a masonite canvas employing contrasting colors of the sun and plains to highlight the last moments of sunlight.
