Paint Party Friday week 5

I am loving Paint Party Friday. It has kept me on track all week. And, I have finished one picture and all but finished the other. This is the finished one. I had to take the picture at a bit of an angle so you can see all the iridescence and gold etc. I had this one up last week face-on. It just looked very red!

And this is the other one. I just need to make some changes to the little islands. They are in silver at the moment need to be the same as the big blacks in the background.I have put an angled one up so you can see the iridescence again. I love iridescence. It is so much fun putting the finishing touches on.
Just so you remember, this was last week!
Below was the blank canvas last week with a photo stuck to it. It still has a long way to go. It has had a number of coats trying to get the clouds looking like clouds, not quite got it yet.
The one on the right is the original picture taken by my friend Vicki I can't quite get the sizes right cos can only fit two small ones together. (I find Blog.spot quite frustrating. I need some lessons! Anyone got any suggestions? Some of your blogs are wonderfully full of goodies. I can't even get the Paint Party Friday button up!)
Yes, I know, sunsets and sunrises. I am obsessed. At least I have moved on from RED and only red! I am painting towards an exhibition I will have in The Red Shed our little co-op gallery in June. At almost 62 I count as an emerging artist!! Looking forward to your work.

  13. Lovely sunsets! Love the purples and oranges. The only advice I can give about Blogger is to use Wordpress instead, LOL.

    p.s. If you would like a blog button, I just changed the button in the sidebar of the PPF blog. To get it:
    Click on "Design" at the top of your blog, then click "Add a Gadget" and select "HTML/Java Script". Copy the code that is underneath the button in the PPF sidebar and paste it into your "HTML/Java Script" window, then click save.

    Hope that helps :)

  28. I too love sunrises and sunsets and these are beautiful!

    They are a challenge to paint though - you did a great job!

    Maybe we should have had a category for sunsets in the poll - but I guess it's covered in landscapes...
