All right, this is not an altogether believable sky, but we artists are not always in the believability business. I learned quite awhile ago that skies can be painted in all sorts of colors aside from blue. This is a "paint over". It is always cool to paint something over...ending up with something completely new. The steps are below:
4. I'm thinking about simple shapes and color harmony. (The design is from a previous painting)
6. There are few elements in this painting...but the design is strong. I especially like the grain of the wood in the paint. I'll add a little variety to the sky tomorrow..but I won't change it much! It's absolutely fun to "paint over"---!!
