    The first choice that comes to mind is the simple route: paint. Cheap, quick, easy to "erase" when you are done with the "welcoming"...
    Failing that:
    A laser head like a NuSalt or the like could put enough photon density on that pleasantly neutral-ish grey beam to be seen in the setting sun.
    Ummm... Mole Richardson 20" Tener with a tophat and double metal gobos. Something like 300FC @ 100' spotted to 20' dia. if my spongy brain remembers the charts...

    The Jo-Leko is only really 1600w and most HMI type instruments are way not IP rated for outdoor use.

    I agree with the other posters contention that yer basic S4 (or any other type simple theater lighting) isn't going to have enough oomph to be seen on a west facing beam at dusk.

    So, if it has to be light, at dusk, on a west facing grey beam, I vote for a laser system. (or paint)

    Maybe I missed it, but is there anyway to correct keystoning, or blades to control the light?

    A laser projector, like something from Pangolin, is an excellent idea that I hadn't thought of...

    There are standard shutters, but keystoning would need to be addressed in the Gobo design.
    This is basically an Outdoor rated LED elipsoidal.

    Could you point me to a tutorial or a formula for calculating keystonning?
