Summer Rain


Summer Rain (study), L. Daniel, 9 x 12
.
On Friday afternoon, I traveled with a small group of painting buddies to Bryan, Texas for a paintout we were attending on Saturday morning. On the way there, we stopped at Lake Somerville State Park and found this breezy lakeshore vista. The showers in the distance never reached us and we painted till dusk. Ah, the good life...

These clouds are just amazing!! That shadow area on the front ones and then that purple-ish shadow on the others...wow!!! Did you consciously think about making some of them warmer/less purple than the others?

I love, love, love the structure and weight of your clouds. Just perfect, including the rain in the distance!
