How to paint an easy vibrant sunset with layered mountains using simple acrylic painting techniques for beginners.
Hey guys, today I will show you how to make a sunset with layers of mountain acrylic painting.
This is a very easy & simple acrylic painting step by step for beginners, using easy acrylic painting techniques. The key to make a pastel sunset is to add white paint in whichever colors you are using for the sky. I used fuschia and orange, you can sunset combos like pink and purple, yellow orange red, it depends on you! I personally felt these colors look great with the blue mountains. The best way to keep the blending easy is to blend these colors before they dry out, for example if you try this acrylic painting, you wouldn’t want to start adding pink once the orange is dried completely, it will be hard for you to blend. If your brush feels dry, you can always add some water in your paints, but make sure to start by adding less water and see if you need more, rather than shooting lots of water and ending up with sloppy strokes :s
In my acrylic painting, for the mountains, in the first layer I used alot of white when mixing with prussian blue, for the next one, I took less white than before, swatched it and when it was good I made the second layer, for the third I repeated my step and made sure to have more prussian blue, and for the last layer I used prussian blue only
