Seeing clouds

I hadn't been able to get to the studio for a couple weeks as I had to get kids ready to go back to school and Cat coming home for a much needed week long visit, so when I did get back out there, I wanted to loosen up a bit and start slowly.   I am always taking pictures of clouds and thought they would give me great practice in really seeing the subtleties and the colors as well as allowing me to keep some looser brush strokes.  I had a great time doing them and hope to revisit them again but for the next few weeks I have two commissions and then I'd like to get back to the NYC series and some small works for the holidays.  Have a great week!

I don't think these pictures do the paintings justice. I love the last painting.

These cloud pieces are very grand and epic. Magnificent pieces.
