In The Studio: Just Paint 8 “Storm On Westkeig”

I am trying to keep this painting really simple with just a gesture of the landscape and weather, I think it works okay, but I think I will give another go this afternoon.  I am still not feeling well but I want to keep painting, so you are stuck with me.  My palette is cobalt blue, thalo yellow green, cobalt violet and hansa yellow.  It has the potential to be really exciting and light filled.

Using a 1.5 in wash brush I float in the sky with just hint of the foreground.  I try to get the movement in the lights of the sky and give it enough movement and character to be a great distant plane.

Continuing with the large brush put some movement in the front leaving interesting white shapes with texture on the edges.
