Technique Tuesday - More Clouds

More And More Clouds

I'm really working on clouds right now.
I started out with a mottled gray background.

Once I got the background done,
I totally intended to do a very monotone sky and clouds.

But . . .

I don't really know what happened,
but I sort of had a disconnect between my brain and my hand.

I love color
and before I knew it,
I had all sorts of color in my clouds and sky.

Can't seem to help myself.
Oh well!
I still like it and everything I learned as I worked on it.
But I guess if I really want a monotoned sky,
I'll have to only allow myself a monotoned palette.

Get ready for my September blogaversary.

  1. Hi Sharon - I enjoyed watching the video even though I felt for you having to hold the painting. I know I had mentioned this before (couldn't find it) and also my sympathies at losing your voice. Poor thing! You still keep a-going and it shows you can't keep a good woman down.
    I loved seeing the color creep on it. Happens to me all the time!

  2. That is so funny Julie. I've never noticed my easel was a problem until I saw it in the time lapse format. Maybe because it's so choppy, you notice it more. Still no voice, but I don't need a voice to paint.
