It helps when there is something passing by or standing out, like a horse in this case.
This painting actually shows a multitude of moments, the ocean still reflects the setting sun but in the clouds, this sun has developed into a pink line.
I think you could call this #artisticfreedom : ) It took a while before I could make use of this, allowing this in my paintings. And it has both pros as cons. Leaving stuff out, heightening, lowering objects or areas, changing colors, you can do it all, the cons would be you might miss out on ‘the beauty that’s just there-the imperfect moment- being what it is’.
No conclusions here, just saying, just paint :)
