Another Banff Sunset

This was supposed to look like it belonged in a set with the Banff Sunset I painted a couple of weeks ago. As it happens, about all they have in common is a lot more detail than can normally be seen after sunset, when the only natural light is alpenglow.

There are a couple of reasons they’re so different. I didn’t have the other painting available for reference when I painted this one and, more importantly, I couldn’t find my indigo paint, so I used Payne’s gray instead.  I haven’t used my Payne’s gray for so long it took almost five minutes to get the lid off the tube... And I think I like it better!
