I tried several approaches, but nothing was working for me. So, I just started playing with paint and my palette knife. I was envisioning a sunset over the landscape, choosing colors that "felt" right for me.
You can see how deep the canvas is in this pic. I actually love these big clunky canvases on shelves rather than walls, and I like the feel of the rough clunky paint.
All in all, it was a fun painting day.
