Dang it I just typed up a whole comment on this and fell asleep before I hit send, and it got erased.
Lessons learned here:
1) I don’t like paintings of sunsets.
2) I think my pigments retain their color more as they dry than the pigments Ron uses – I should ease off a bit on saturation since the colors do not mute as much when they dry.
3) I like the way the clouds/sky are reflected in the colors of the waves.
4) I. Need to find a way to successfully soften the troughs.
