Sunset serenity original painting November 2018 | News

Sunset serenity, St Annes-on-sea beach in Lancashire by fine artist Timothy Gent

During the last month or so, I’ve continued to paint the sunset, including a number of more colourful watercolour paintings based on the reds, oranges and yellows of the low sun as it vanishes beyond the horizon.

My latest painting is Sunset serenity, reflecting the intensity of light as the sun crosses over the horizon of the sea.

You can imagine the actions of nature, with the shifting broken clouds and the natural rhythms and actions of the sea. One of the beautiful things you sometimes see during sunset or sunrise is the emerging of a wide spectrum of colours.

With this painting, I've suggested cooler shades of pink which transform into yellows and then the fiery yellow and oranges of an intense sun passing under the horizon.
