Exhausted from spending long hours at the daily grind? Check out these amazing sunsets for emergency smiles! From bold to breathtaking, the views are always wonderful in original art. Below are some honorable mentions that capture the setting sun both in looks and feel.
Everything you could want in a classic Outer Banks sunset is here in this watercolor painting. Watching the sun sink into the big sound in the west is like Nature’s Broadway show. The soft brush strokes create a peaceful setting for the fiery sun sinking into the refreshing water. What could the sitting fellow be contemplating, we wonder? He may have a lot on his mind. Or not - perhaps he’s pulling a crab pot and just thinking about dinner.
Not all gorgeous Outer Banks sunsets are found on the open water. This oil painting of a dune is lovely, too! It looks just like a beach walk does on a clear evening. Thanks to the wide-open skies in the local area, you can catch the colors of a sunset even from the eastern beachside. If you’re fortunate, you could be treated to a second marvelous sight of the moon rising from the ocean.
Here we see a different kind of sunset over the river flats of Colorado. The realism style in this oil painting features dramatic lighting as the flamy sky simmers into the night. The sun in this scene is powerful and uplifting. This American western scene is a striking contrast to the sunsets on the eastern coast.
Speaking of the eastern shore, we can’t help but notice this graceful flock of ibis birds flying across the sunlit clouds. The price of the piece is much less than it looks - it’s under $75! That’s because it’s a watercolor etching, but there are only so many pieces in circulation. Some etchings raise their value over time in the art market. You may want to pick this one up before it’s gone!
