Sunset landscape is the easiest form of landscape painting to begin with. Sunset hues appear in the background with elements in the landscape appearing closer in perspective. Sunset landscape painting always includes natural scenery. The 3 aspects of landscape painting are abstract, impressionistic and representational.

To explore this art form in detail, The Circle Community conducted a Backyard Sunset Workshop with expert artist Ananya T.

About The Artist

Ananya T has been fond of colours since childhood. She experimented with various colouring media like watercolour, acrylic and gouache. Hand-lettering is something she has learnt recently. She enjoys both hand-lettering and painting. One can follow her on Instagram and see her varied artworks at @artby.anan.

The Workshop Began

Ananya gave a detailed explanation about the materials needed for backyard sunset painting. She exhibited some of her other artworks so that the participants would get an exact idea through visual representation. She started with pasting masking tape on the edges of the paper as a frame. First the purple-blue hues covered the upper half of the paper while the bottom half was covered with yellowish orange hues. The painting looked even more beautiful when details were drawn with pencil. The detailing involved using black colour giving a touch of silhouette for the detailed work.

Towards The End Of The Workshop

The most important part that Ananya told everyone was to keep a note of the blending technique. The participants were excited to show their artworks to Ananya. They very well grasped the concept of making small objects and painting the background. Ananya was happy to see the outcome and corrected their mistakes.

The attendees were from different parts of the country. They also belonged to different age groups but their love for art brought them together on a single platform. The Circle Community, as always, was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together. 

On this note, here’s us signing off until next time!
