Painting Sunset with oil paints

I was always very fond of making sunsets with color pencils water colors etc. Painting sunsets always have a very immediate stress relieving and calming effect. They remind you of the calmness and the steady processing of the day to its end.

Recently i have started working with Oils. Oil painting initially seemed hell messy to me so i decided to take proper guidelines from a web or so.I found an amazing site and step by step making of sunset with its color variations.Here goes the site

I wasn’t able to make it quite right as it was my first try.I was also lacking the specific colors for its margins and the sky surrounding near the sun.I also wanted to keep the shades a little bit lighter unlike the sharp colors in the painting.

Here goes my version

I am still looking forward to improving it as much as possible.
