Ocean Sunset

11" x 17"

I chose Van Gogh's Starry Skies as the source of my color palette, and while I am late posting this, it actually came together very quickly -- except for the final touch, the birds in the sky. These I found in the course of cleaning up odds and ends of junk, and would have ended up in the wastebasket if I hadn't had a use for them here!

I also used a bit of Angelina fiber to blend the sunset colors into the dark sky.

Comments are welcome.

Hi Tobi, this is gorgeous! It feels like a dream...sort of a surreal ocean. Love the black edges to some of the waves...enhances the sense of movement. Great job!

I agree with Cynthia. Love the bold blues with the yellow + lots of movement.
