Sunset on the Cape Fear River in Wilmington NC

Sunset on the Cape Fear River

Pastel painting of the Cape Fear River from the Coast Line Convention Center in Wilmington, NC by Rose Ganucheau.

This sunset scene was captured in early December 2006 during an art show at the convention center.  I worked from a series of photographs that I took over a period of ten minutes.  Although the great majority of my pastel paintings are painted on sight, the fleeting nature of sunsets requires a different approach, as the sky can change completely in just a few moments.  I suppose that's why I find them so fascinating.

Work:12 x 9,  Framed
