Be sure to give this painting a closer look and not miss out on the marvelous textures which you can find throughout this artists entire gallery. CRIMSON by *ARTBYTERESA ( Suggested by 3wyl and Featured by Astralseed )

First of all, this piece can simply be said to be absolutely stunning. The colors are rich and effective in portraying what the artist is trying to convey - a sultry, blood-red sunset. (Or at least that's what I, as a viewer, get from it.) Plus, the contrast in the colors is so drastic, especially in the bottom water part, it's hard not to have your attention grabbed. The execution of the piece is also really beautiful. I really enjoy the knife action happening in the bottom water portion as it makes me want to touch it to feel the roughness and texture of the water. But the soft, almost wispy clouds in the top 2/3rds is also well executed. It almost looks like watercolors, which is really quite impressive.
Lastly, I enjoy the fact that the artist understands "the rule of thirds" and has broken up this piece with a nice horizon line that is just where it ought to be. Awesome job!

Having tried to work with red in oil and acrylic compositions before, I know how difficult the color can be to work. And then to get complimentary greens that do not look unrealistic or washed out. This art shows a natural affinity for the warm colors and at the same time a well balanced approach to working with the complimentary colors. Especially notice the transitioning from the reds to orange to yellow to the blue of the sky. I work alot with the knife and thoroughly enjoy the techniques used to apply the paint on the work to suggest the land formations transitioning to the clouds and sky. Also the warm shadows are very nice when counterpointing the cool light source.

I love the effect of the reflection of the sky in the water.
How did you get the texture using acrylic? Mine normally dries flat unless I have several different layers of paint on a section (which normally happens when I'm not happy with that section haha)
