Plein Air Painting with a Cloudy Forecast - Fairy Tale Sky
Fairy Tale Sky

Painting a glorious sky is a sublime pleasure. The possibilities are endless and so are the colors. Preparations are being made for a Plein Air painting workshop on clouds at the end of October. Big Blue is still on the easel, so into my archives I go to choose a variety of cloud types from my previous paintings with which to teach. Hope you enjoy seeing them. Clicking the image will enlarge your viewing pleasure~

Big Blue is not yet ready to sign, but she’s getting close. Maybe tomorrow. Always hopeful, but the painting will tell me with a song. I always say I stop when the painting starts to sing. She’s warming up. Here are a few details where I have heard the melody rising up. : )

My most sincere thanks for all my viewers. It makes it very fun to put these together each week.
