Sunsets fascinate everyone, including artists. The prairie provides a nice subject to do a panoramic format sunset painting. Sometimes we are afforded the opportunity to do sunsets on location. The secret is to set up your easel a couple of hours early and block in the basic painting. Then when the beautiful color comes, you are ready to put it in very fast. You only have about fifteen minutes to finish the painting with that glorious light.
