Sunset Palm Trees

So a few days ago I decided to give gradient a try again. I don’t usually have the best luck when it comes to gradient. The first few times that I did turned out to be disasters, so I was really pleased on how these turned out! ๐Ÿ˜€

For the gradient, I used 3 colors:

Sally Hansen Cherry Red
Wet N Wild Wild Shine Sunny Side Up
California Nails Yellow

I painted the base with Sunny Side Up as this was going to be the dominant color. I then created the gradient using the sponge method and finished off with silhouette of palm trees, birds, and mountains with Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Cremeย and the sun with California Nailsย Yellow.ย I don’t own any art brushes so I used toothpick to draw the birds and palm trees.

I was inspired by a few pictures I took during a trip to Costa Rica earlier this May.ย My friends and I were chilling at the beach one evening when I captured this beautiful sunset.

Hands down we had one of the best time of our lives. The natives were extremely nice and we were treated like princesses. It was truly a paradise.ย Would definitely love to travel to new places and discover more breathtaking scenery the nature has to offer.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this post. ๐Ÿ™‚ Until then!

With love, QL
