Wild Sky On The Palouse- northwest oil landscape

Wild Sky on the Palouse   oil      11" x 14"
I do like to paint cloud formations and wild skies like these, for the motion they create. Using descriptive brushwork and reflected color are always certainly a part of the appeal for me. The larger view will show that I've used bits of violet in the ground and some ochre tones in the clouds, to provide some unity between land and sky.
