648 Great Horned Sunset

Late on Thursday afternoon, the clouds and the colours of the sunset over the back hill caught my eye. The family Chesapeake and I headed out just to the north of the farm house and I very quickly laid in the colours and the shapes. It was getting dark very quickly so I didn't have much time. The sunlight breaking through the clouds and the yellow-blue of the sky were the highlights I wanted to capture. A Great Horned Owl was hooting almost continually from the forest just to the north. He provided the soundtrack and the title for the painting.
The clearing that I was talking about in the description of the morning's painting was just starting. In another couple of hours, it would be clear.
