Western Skies Study


Western Skies Study, 6 x 6, SOLD
.
I am working on a series of big sky paintings that got into my head when I was out in West Texas and the Davis Mountains. I have done several small studies for this series and will post them as I complete the larger versions. I love how the open range goes on for miles and miles out there; it makes the sky seem bigger and more dramatic.

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
The brushwork in the clouds and the colors in the sky. You captured that cerulean tone that works so well with the colors in the land.

Big sky, small painting. Always a killer combo! This one proves the point.

This is lovely, the minimal details of the clouds, purpley mountains and golden field with crooked little fence combine to make a charming piece.

I like how you've kept a light touch with the clouds.... Makes they look very realistic!!
And your colors, as always are wonderful...
I'm looking forward to seeing the big versions and how the compare to the wonderful studies you're doing.
