It turns out that dusk is almost as elusive to capture from life as sunrise is. And if it was a snowy day, dusk is grey not blue. I had to wait for sunny days to get the lovely blue dusk and then it was all a very flat blue. Finally last night there was some wisps of white cloud and a blue dusk so I frantically redid the sky. I love it. I’ve been thinking about a dusk painting since I started these.
I now have a dawn painting and a dusk painting (see below). Everyone may be getting bored of these “backyard landscapes” but I have plans for them—I’ve got a few more paintings to do before that happens so just sit tight. Right now I’m in the midst of applications and submissions that I have yet to hear back from (hence no post the past couple of weeks but more on that to come).

This new painting looks very nice. Even though it is dusk, it appears luminous. I like it very much. I wonder how the backyard would look like at night?
Thanks Marie. This is my new favourite of the backyard paintings :)
