Watercolour Painting of Minnis Bay this evening and some thoughts about pink

This painting of Minnis Bay is as close as I could get to how it looked this evening

the bit I painted cropped from the photo below, yep a lot to learn here

 The photo which I took just as I started seems to have some pink in the sky which wasn't there to the naked eye at this time.

Looking at paintings by professional artists there is certainly more red and pink in the skies than I normally see and I am pretty sure that that the sky I painted was pretty close to how the sky looked, so I am wondering if I should be introducing a bit of red even if I can’t see it. 

I was rather taken with the size shape relationship of the windfarm windmills and the people on the shoreline.


just tacked the Pegwell Bay Hotel picture and the one taken on finishing on the end for reference
