Painting and a sketch

This painting is from a photo I took two Christmases ago at Callaway Gardens in Georgia. There was the most beautiful and vibrant sunset I remember seeing in years. I took a bunch of photos and did this painting from those. There is no way to adequately recreate those incredible colors!

I occasionally participate in various challenges on, an online artist community. A couple of months ago, one of the weekend challenges included this rooster from Monet's Garden. I couldn't resist sketching this beautiful chicken! He looked so peaceful.
