Here’s my take on the classic sunset seascape: The Red Sun sitting  on the horizon. It’s the first of the three stages of twilight. So next to this painting, I’ll paint the second stage of twilight: the red sun gone halfway down the horizon, but still spreading its radiance to the sky, the clouds, and the sea Then, I’ll paint the third stage stage of twilight: a radiant  point on the horizon where the sun has gone down, just before dusk sets in. Dusk is the darkest sky, even darker than nighttime. I’ll skip painting a dusk sky, knowing that dawn break will soon brighten up the sky once more.
