I saw a fabulous sunset this summer on our trip to Michigan. I had to paint it! I’ve rarely painted anything like this. I want to paint a bigger one, this one is 9×12” on canvas board. I sold the painting on Facebook to an old friend who grew up appreciating the Lake Michigan Sunset.
I’ve been on vacation. At this time, we were exploring the Keewenaw Peninsula around Lake Superior in Michigan. It would be a great opportunity for Plein Air painting, but I’m with family and we’re always on the move. I thought to squeeze it in while we were sitting on the beach, but the only option was my IPad. This would be great if not for sunlight’s glare on the screen. I used Art Set Pro on my IPad with a brush stylus. Fortunately I had colors picked for landscape on my palette. I made some revisions after I got inside. I considered it a worthwhile exercise. I’m heading home today.
