I really like this one. It is another in my "sunset Silhouette" series. Please let me know what you think.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Again, what style would you categorize this painting? What tips would you give me that could have added to this piece?

well there is a lot to like. I think it's well designed, but what I think is missing is color dominance. It's blue and red orange ..if it were mine, I'd use a red orange glaze over all or most of it.

I have never used glazes before. Just to verify, would this be referring to using a transparent glaze and adding a touch of red to it (10 parts glaze, 1 part red)? I have looked it up and have bought some, but have not had the nerve to attempt using it yet...

Would it make my blue sky more purple?

yes. you can wipe it as you go if you get it too strong.

You can dilute your paints to create glazes, just be sure you use a medium with your turp as just using turp alone to thin the paint can evaporate leaving 'dust' instead of pigment, have fun :)
