'October Sky-Highrock' #32

I painted this one late afternoon several weeks ago.
Artist Linny D. Vine and I were hoping to get
some early evening sky drama to paint as a new
front approached. While it didn't develop as I
had hoped it did provide some interesting
patterns and light. We needed to paint
fairly quickly due to the failing light.
Oil on wood panel 6 x 8.

Hi again Jeffrey!... I love both of these plein air pieces for entirely different reasons!

Without succumbing to my usual excessive "wordiness"...in a nut shell each depicts the two... and very different sides of autumn... one the glorious colour... the other the beautifully quiet gloom and austere face! Both gems!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,

Havent seen dramatic clouds painted like this before...the place is very picturesque :)

You really know how to capture the sky and its gentle storm energy. And, the colors are nuanced with a peace in the midst feeling.

Beautiful work.

Thanks Bruce..as I have mentioned before I tend to struggle with cloudy day scenes but I liked the light in the sky with this one. As an artist friend of mine often says "no sun no fun".. =:-/

Thanks Prabha...there is certainly drama in the skies as a front approaches!
