    I snapped a photo of a snow clouds coming in. There was this white cloud on dark background. I thought it would make interesting subject. I got my sky way overwork. Here’s where I ended up.

    Although I don’t do value sketches, your painting reminds me of why i should. Before painting, sketch the photo using around three values. It will really help the final painting.
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>i think the only problem is that your clouds are too dark at the horizon. The upper clouds are great and i think the midground and foreground are fine.</p>
    Again, your paintings remind me so much of the southwest.

    My reaction to you painting is 1st of all an emotional one….Wow!  The very dark cloud mass at the horizon is what makes it so powerful for me…I would not change a thing!!  I have been doing some reading about Plain Air painting and a recurring them is Emotional Involvement with the subject, which is what will capture the viewer.

    Your painting “caught ME!”
