The Magnificence of Texas Sunsets

Oh, the splendor of Texas sunsets!

One of the most beautiful places in the world to capture a sunset in oil on canvas is Texas. Being a native Texan, of course, I’m prejudiced!

With its vast open prairies, cacti, ghost towns, old west culture, and billowy clouds, the Lone Star State makes an excellent backdrop for some of the most breathtaking sunsets anywhere in the world. Artists like me, who are fortunate enough to reside here, have a plethora of opportunities to capture the setting sun in all its glory and grandeur in our sunset paintings. Those who don’t live here can delight in making trips to Texas to see the setting sun for themselves and take it back to their studios in the form of photos or sketches for future paintings.

With the varied skylines that each metropolitan has to offer, Texas cities can make for a stunning sunset cityscape. Artists can also witness the sunset on the beach along the Gulf of Mexico, or travel west for a more rugged landscape and catch a sight of the mountain peaks of Big Bend National Park silhouetted against an orange glowing sky.

Texas Sunsets

Artists flock to Texas every year to capture the setting sun in all its splendor as it disappears below the horizon. Here’s why:

    • A lovely sunset allows one to enjoy the better things in life.
    • A beautiful sunset helps to inspire you.
