Red Sunset Hills and Ferry SOLD

The north end Vashon Ferry seen from the Fauntleroy side. A late afternoon view when the sun is low and turns the hills red and throws the scene into shadow.  I have tried to paint this view previously without success, so this time I did a rendering in black white & gray and then applied multiple glazes of red, orange, brown and even a little blue.  The black & white start allowed me to control the values and the drawing without having to solve the colors at the same time.
