This is one of my early morning studies where I was practicing technique. I wanted the feel of a storm coming yet the sun was still shinning through that sucker hole as my meteorologist husband would say. So the painting is bright and colorful yet the sky is threatening. It definitely makes the colors pop and the shadows interesting; a favorite of many of my followers.
It is a practice of mine to work on vellum paper to warm up in the studio before I start my day of painting. It keeps my skills honed and allows me time for experimentation. This is an example of atmospheric experimentation, I wanted my sky full of drama yet a landscape full of promise. Spring flowers popping up from winter rains. Though we are experiencing extreme draught in our part of the world I am ever hopeful that God will nurture our arid lands.
This painting is matted and ready to frame total area 12″ X 16″. A great value since I sell them far below my canvas work.
