"Stormy Dawn" Late Spring Day, Last Year on the Farm 6 x 8 oil
I woke Saturday morning to BIG lightning and thunder...I watched for a while, trying to memorize what I saw (ever tried to paint lightning en plein air?)...after sketching a little one like this, the sun began to brighten the sky through the thunder (see Saturday's posting), and I continued to paint 24 in the next 24 hours....I actually had a few unintended interruptions, so this ended up covering 2 days of painting....all of which totalled about 18 hours. At the very end, I used my little sketch as reference to paint this small painting...
I will post quite a few of these in the next week, so please come see!
And please leave comments below.
