Sunset in Paradise

There have sure been a bunch of great paintings posted recently. Everyone seems to be finding their creative juices. Maybe its that the weather is getting warmer. Hopefully this painting will stimulate more work as it is a depiction of a warm weather sunset in the South Pacific.

24" x 36" Oil on Canvas

Comments appreciated. Thank for looking.
Ron

We are right in the middle of a very hot summer, Ron, we sure don't need it getting any warmer!
Beautiful colour, Ron, terrific work.

A beautiful scene Ron. Love the colors and the touches of light on the hillsides.

Re: Sunset in Paradise

Thanks everyone. Your kind words are very much appreciated. After contemplating the finished painting, I have decided to darken the water in the foreground.

Re: Sunset in Paradise

Thank you D'Arcy and Sandra, it is always nice to know that my peers appreciate my work.

I have actually added and changed a lot of eliments of this painting to make it better - I hope! Not sure if I should post it. Don't want to be repetitive.
Ron
