Chasing The Sun – Watercolor

Chasing The Sun watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Chasing The Sun watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Sold)

Every evening in Key West everyone heads to Mallory Square to watch the sun sink into the ocean while the tall ships head in to port.  You never grow tired of it.

For “Chasing The Sun” watercolor I wanted to push the sunset colors from the reality of my poor photography to the brilliant colors I remembered.  The sky was on fire with color that evening!  The background was painted very loosely on 140 # Arches cold press paper.  I used the somewhat opaque qualities of cerulean blue on the water surface to enhance the small bits of blue left in the sky.

Frame size is 14 x 17, mat opening is 11.5 x 15.5.
