Here's a detail image of the painting in progress. The tress and field are under painted with mostly burnt sienna.

Abstract beauty of clouds.

Lately I've been fascinated with the abstract beauty of clouds.  Form, color, pattern, shape, and design. I've painted multiple small pieces, 6"x 8" or 8"x 10" attempting to capture the elusive mood created at late afternoon, early evening, or just before sunrise. As I have mentioned, I shoot numerous photos when the sky is dramatic. I'm read that forest fires in Canada and out west this summer have had an influence on the color we have seen this year in Wisconsin. This is a larger painting 18"x 26". It has a split complimentary color scheme, although I didn't specifically plan it that way.

I don't have images of the process this time, but I may post some of the smaller paintings later.
