Today in my live YouTube lesson (Tuesdays at 1pm MST), for all you lovers out there who love sunsets on the beach but not the long walks, I’m painting a beach sunset. The challenge of sunsets is to understand the interplay between vibrant colour and dark neutrals, and to correctly interpret the values.
