Oil paint — Black, Purple, Red

The glowing reds, rose, orange, and yellows we see at sunrise and sunset are caused when sunlight passes through particles in the Earth’s atmosphere, setting off a spectacular display of changing hues. Sunlight has a longer path to follow to penetrate the Earth’s atmosphere than at midday. “In sunshine, all the colorus of the rainbow combine to make light we see as white. If air molecules scattered these colours equally, the sky would be as white as a snow bank or the water droplets of a cloud. But, air molecules do not scatter all colors equally.” (Murphy, P. and Doherty, P. 1996. Pg 90)
