This was inspired by an amazing sunset we had a few weeks ago after a bushfire.
I decided to add th boat for interest.
I used texture for the boat and made the sails our of acrylic skins....That way my husband can feel it, even though he can’t see it.

Love the colors.  Can you please explain "acrylic skins"?  It's a new term to me.

The sky is magnificent, muted colourings and blendings perfect for the scene.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I might be all wet on this one, you can make acrylic skins by painting on plastic or other nonstick surface like baking paper.

never mind this will show you!

Sorry for the late reply...I have been sick for a few days.

I have been making them for a while now...so many uses for them.

Terri:  I love the sunset.  When I looked at the sails I could not figure out what it was.  Cleaver idea.  Your Husband must appreciate it.   :clap: :clap:

Teresa (Terry)   have you seen the technique where you make a skin by pouring a little round puddle of one colour (say:red)on to your non-stick surface, then add a bit less of another (say:purple) to the centre of the first red blob. You can keep on adding colours  and the paint forms concentric rings. One artist, Sandra ne Pelissier, does this and then uses the resulting skins to make fantasy flowers. It should be right up your imaginative  and experimental alley.
