Stormy Sky Over The Bay

We've had some pretty stormy weather recently. Thought I would try to catch the mood over San Francisco bay during this period. I used hookers green mixed with Payne's grey for the sky and sea, and Raw Sienna for the beach. Size: 14" x 11".


Cypress Sunset

Trees and sunsets - my favorite things to paint. I love atmospheric skies and what better setting to complete the picture than some dramatic trees. I used granulation medium in the foreground for the texture. For the sky I used a course painters brush to create the striations. Just four colors - transparent red iron oxide, cadmium red, Payne's grey and burnt umber.
