In this lesson I’ll show you how to create a beautiful sunset reflecting in the calm water. I’ll take you step by step through each layer, color mixture and brush stroke. Together we will create this powerful and colorful sky and calm reflecting water. This lesson is all about layering, and is a great lesson if you want to learn how to create a realistic sunset in acrylic. It takes a lot less detail and work than you might think, and I’ll show you how!
