WIP - Clouds...

As promised.... the WIP photo. Having a bit of trouble with that pinky-orange in the upper left, but I think there was a smidge of blue (tucked around the side of my yellow) that was mucking up the purity of my mixed color.

I knew it was there... I didn't think it would have much of an effect. It did. Just enough to be irritating.

Good thing I can paint over paint! I might let a bit of this slightly muddy orange remain and act like some of the deeper parts of the cloud... We'll see how it goes.

I cannot wait to see how this turns out. It is so dynamic now, and will only get better. Thanks for posting a WIP photo, I love seeing them.

Sara, just found your site and I love it. I can't believe you only use 4 colors. You must be a whiz at mixing!!! I really like how you chronicle the work from sketch on
up, it's always a learning experience to see how other painters work. Will visit again.

do you paint the whole canvas red first? or can you get red canvas? this process intrigues me!
