Cloud Play

Cloud Play
Oil on panel, 10x8
With all of the storms moving through lately, we have had the most wonderful cloud formations in the sky!  I think skies are a challenging subject with the subtle color and edge changes.  Since it has been a while since I have attempted one, it made a perfect study for today's painting.  Perhaps I should try to add one each week......the surest way to improve at anything is to work on it on a regular basis.  I have used mainly brush work on this, with some palette knife to finish.  Leaving some of the original orange underpainting creates a little harmony and energy throughout.  This one makes 523 paintings in as many days.  Now back to yard work!


  1. You did a great job on these clouds. They seem very hard to paint.... Congrats on being the featured artist on PPF!
