Art: AT SUNSET-Sold by Artist Sherry Key
This is how I imagine it would be at sunset. The western sun is setting in front leaving a blazing trail in the background and on the giraffe. 

It's already looking like a night sky in the background and the mountains are in shadows.

Done in Sharpie Limited Edition MOD color permanent markers. This took about 7 hours which was a few hours longer than I thought it would be. 

Challenging because I found I had to create the illusion of blending colors and shading because they don't have a large range of gradation in Sharpies  as they do in other brands of art markers. 

Also they bleed when applied to paper and you have to learn to incorporate that aspect as well. Overall though I absolutely loved the bright colors.

This is my entry in the EBSQ Sharpie Show.
