Sunset Paintings, Why I Love Them

Texas is well-known for its spectacular sunsets. Growing up in Texas, I had many opportunities to observe numerous beautiful skies filled with a wide array of shades of orange, yellows, purples, and blues. Is there any wonder that I would choose to create sunset paintings as part of my art repertoire?

For The Love of Sunset Paintings

Sunsets are certainly a favorite type of painting for me because of the many bright colors. I like how I can incorporate the sky at dusk (or dawn) into so many different settings of landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, and even skyscapes.

And I’m not the only one who appreciates sunset paintings. Here’s why:

  • They are a picturesque representation of the evening sky and sun in all their grandeur and splendor. Just the way God intended.
  • Artists worldwide love to paint the close of the day because it offers them opportunities to include vibrant shades of yellows, oranges, blues, and purples, along with earth colors of dark browns and rich blacks, which work together to create warmth and charm within their compositions.
  • The rays of light that bounce off and peek through the clouds create excitement and drama like no other. They attract the viewer’s attention and draw him or her in.
  • Early evening is for romantics, and many artists have captured the romance of a setting sun in some of the most exotic places in the world.
  • Sunset paintings look great in just about any room of your home, office, or place of business.
