Sun Setting Grand Lake Collage

Sun Setting Grand Lake

Because of the altitude, the sunsets here are spectacular and different in some way everyday. Colors are brilliant and this afternoon, the sun seemed to sink into the mountains.  I made a quick sketch and finished the collage (5″x7″) with tissue paper, inks and oil pastels.  The Alpen glow disappears  into the horizon. This will be a stimulus for a large painting in my Grand Lake Series.
