Breckenridge Sunset #4

I started out working on a digital painting for #4. But I got the urge to paint with acrylics, and this is the result. The finished painting is about 4.5″ x 9.75″. I scanned it in – the colors are slightly off from the painting, but are pretty close to the painted version. It’s based on a photo I took on a day trip last summer to Breckenridge, Colorado – about two hours from our house.

Here’s the original photo I worked from:

It’s good to be able to have options – digital or traditional. I started cleaning my old technical pens after seeing some nice pen and ink illustrations this week. I used to do pen and ink pointillism pieces, so I might work on one of those (if the pens still work!) coming up.
