Running out of time. Doetinchem, the Netherlands

Yesterday I hadn't much time and when I did it was almost too late to go out and paint although I did.
It failled, I simply run out of light. Luckily I have one of a Sunset I made a few weeks back, I'll post that one first and the failure after that.

The first painting is beautiful, with the soft pinks and blues, but I actually really love your 'failed' attempt! It's very atmospheric, the colours are beautiful and the composition is very pleasant. I think as the artist, you are always comparing a painting to what you wanted it to be- as a viewer, you just judge what you see. Sometimes even the things you think are 'failures' can be beautiful and inspiring to someone else! It's a shame you're not selling it, but then I don't have a lot of money to buy art right now anyway. Ah, the joys of being a just-starting-out artist!

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck with your art and look forward to your future posts!

Thanks you Both, much appreciated.

You see something you like to grasp but then realize you can't get it cause you're made a practical misstake is a bit of a pity, that what I experienced with the second one, ... Those moments of a splendid sunset are soo shortlived you should plan them a bit more then I did with this painting, ...

Again thank you both for the nice comment.
