Sunset from South Fortuna Mountain

Sketch of the Sunset from South Fortuna Mountain by Sarah Sullivan

Sunset from South Fortuna Mountain

This is a quick 5 X 8 inch sketch in a small Moleskine sketchbook. We were hiking in Mission Trails Regional Park as the sun set into the Pacific Ocean. The beauty of the boulders and mountain tops against the sky was compelling but we had to get off the mountain and out of the park while we could still see the path. I sketched as fast as I could, hoping I might be able to capture enough of the moment to be able to use it, along with photographs, for a larger painting. Sadly, the larger painting has not turned out well, so I am posting this small gouache sketch. I like its abstract quality.
