These sky paintings are nice. I like the little bit of orange showing through from your priming.
Also I just read your post about the Mcphersen method.Good idea. My instructor at the art students league had me cut out colored pieces of magazine pages and build the study as a collage. Very helpful!

Pam, Wow, what spectacular skies. These past few paintings are really beautiful!

So true.

Though that slush-blizzard weekend was a bit hard to take. We're so spoiled with all the sun, aren't we?

Great clouds.

Brian, I think the end result of both lessons is the same...simplify the color values and shapes.
Nancy & Jala, thanks so much. The skies here are just spectacular.
