Clouds Along the Rock

Clouds Along the Rock: Oil on Canvas 16 x 20

Clouds Along the Rock: Oil on Canvas 16″ x 20″

We experienced a couple days of partly cloudy days. Great inspiration. I took some time to get sketches and some color studies. Tough to capture a moving target. As I sketched, I thought about incorporating some of these designs into a landscape. Problem was that the land in front of me was far less than inspirational.

I remembered that I had some sketches created at the Rock River which had less than spectacular skies. Okay, they were boring skies. I ventured back into the studio with my cloud sketches, dug out the river studies and married these elements together.

Background sky is a mixture of Titanium White with Ultramarine Blue and Cerulean Blue. The clouds have combinations of Ultramarine Blue, Alizaron Crimson and Cadmium Yellow.
