Cumulus Color

Cumulus Color  oil  9x9"
If you watch my work, you know I like dramatic skies. Spring can bring it's share of those, because of those unstable conditions. The drama in this scene has more to do with the value contrasts than color. I used a warm orange under painting that was transparent, but intense. Then, when painting over in those cool complimentary violets, the contrasts I wanted, came through.
