Sunset Pattern Variation

Sunset

Notes on the process: I started this small watercolor with overall lighter washes across the paper to get it going and have an  underpainting for those pinks that pop as light in the background. I moved into some darker tones to develop some texture across the page. This is how I like to feel my way in.

After looking at it for a few days I had the feeling that the diamond fan shape needed to happen. I do not want to force the image and am not trying to make anything happen but instead following an urge to see how it would look if I did that. 

I was liking the pink/orange meeting and the indanthrone blue was to highlight that.

Behind the diamond, colors and shapes felt like sunset clouds that were also land and water. I added the line work to define the movement.

I created the pattern variation to try out on a pillow and discovered it looks great on this serving tray.
