This is a larger painting based on the smaller one I recently painted of the same spot and time, Sunset Colours at Elk Lake.
Elk lake sits aside the Patricia Bay Highway, and any time I am driving home to Victoria from that direction it is always a welcome sight. This time we knew we’d have to stop the car and watch the sun set for a while. We’d been watching the clouds turn yellow and pink before we approached, and as always, it was a sublime experience to see them turn to the deep navy blues, reds, purples and oranges as the sun sank slowly into the horizon.
