1. Purple and Pink Sunset
The colors in this painting are gorgeous. The purple and pink sunset is vibrant, and the moon adds a nice touch. I love how the artist used acrylic paint to create this painting.
2. Realistic Waves
Painting realistic waves can be challenging, but it’s doable with some practice. One of the most important things to remember is how light reflects off the water. The light will hit the waves differently depending on the time of day and the weather conditions.
3. Purple and Blue Clouds
These two watercolor paintings are simply beautiful. The artist has captured the delicate quality of clouds perfectly. The purple and blue hues are so calming and serene.
4. Sunset Road
If you enjoy the look of the sunsetting, paint a beautiful sunset along with a peaceful scene, such as this empty road on a warm summer evening.
5. Sunset on the Beach
The warm colors and relaxed vibe are the perfect way to end a long day at the beach. And there’s no better way to capture that feeling than with a pastel painting.
