A New Sky

This is New Sky #3; I've reworked it and am mulling over whether or not to call it finished. I tried something different on this one— since my sunset sky paintings always look garish to me, I thought I'd try a different mix of paints. So I chose three that mimic the colors used in the printing process (cyan, magenta, and yellow), namely, Sennelier's Azure Blue,  Winsor and Newton's Quinacridone Magenta, and my old favorite from Grumbacher, Cadmium Yellow Pale. They created some subtle mixes that I like a lot; very toned down and poetic.

Here's the result:
