Painting in stages

I love the time of the day before the sun sets
, on a cloudless day .Everything is lit with an ultramarine / violet light . I will post these stages, that I had photographed at intervals . My palette was Tit. White, Cad yellow med, cad orange, Alizarin, cobalt violet, ultramarine, trans oxide red and ivory black . The canvas size is 14 x 11.
