I've always loved paintings of the night. Charles Rollo Peters is a favorite and also the western night scenes of Frederick Remington. I use variations of raw umber to get started. Raw umber and blue in the background coming to raw umber and turquoise, green and yellow ochre in the foreground. Then touches of city lights. This is a study I did last summer and there is one larger unfinished painting in the studio. Will get on it this week!
