Went out for a sunset painting tonight

It was a beautiful sunset tonight.  It was more subtle than many nights with only a few clouds around the sun.  This led me to paint a "closeup."  It was a quiet and still evening.  There just isn't anything that compares with painting outside, with the fresh air, the chirping of crickets and the hush of evening turning into night. 

I love the contrast of the brilliant light coming from behind the darker, neutral sky mass.
