I’m up in North Hero, Vermont with some of my family which meant my brother and I got to sit side by side and do a sibling painting yesterday. It was so fun to paint next to him! This paintings inspired by a spectacular sunset boat ride my brother took us for the other night. Mother Nature put on an incredible show. The sky was glowing in every direction–it was sensory overload and all of the layers of clouds and colors felt surreal … almost like a dream. We were sitting out near Butler Island looking towards Vermont’s Green Mountains. This was a tough sky to capture, but I love that we captured the same elements with a very similar palette. Scroll down for a video of our paint session.
