Two sketches at a time...



One sunset, two sketches...
When the sun sets here at Mauritius it's like a great show anywhere you look at the horizon and the sky. The changes are in high speed motion. Every evening it's a big surpise, and I'm always amazed about how fast, how beautiful and dramatic it is.
Here are tonights attempt to catch it in my sketchbook; two different spots of the horizon, done as much as possible at the same time.

Thank you Kristian! I'm learning to just paint! Just paint, even if the session is just a fifteen minute session at most like this one. I think that's when it works best in general, when minutes are counted. So, my new resolution from now on, is to stop thinking about the moments I don't paint, the time I don't have to paint or don't use to paint. I will rather "just paint" when the moments are there, paint without fear or thinking.
