Well, even though I did decide this week that I needed to stop beating myself up over how I paint skies, I still do want to improve in that area. So, I am continuing the Sunday Skies feature for a while longer, it is good practice for me in a non threatening situation.
This week, I used the same reference photo as LAST WEEK.
I’ll post it again so you can see the photo that was guiding my painting:
Once again, I didn’t worry about the land features in the painting, though I did give them a little more care than I did last week. But the land was still just silhouette, because my focus is the sky.
Well while there certainly is still room for improvement, I believe this week’s rendering turned out much better than last week’s.
I think next week I will move on to using a different reference photo, perhaps one with big billowy white cumulus clouds… we’ll see.
