Note from the artist - Big Sky paintings have always fascinated me. For some time I've wanted to create a series of big sky paintings which focus on a study of clouds. The big beautiful cumulus nimbus clouds cirrus, stratus, and everything in between. The first painting in a series always presents the most challenges and accomplishments. This transition piece is no different.. I am extremely happy with the outcome. I thoroughly enjoyed how the Kings Gold, Cadmium Yellow, and Burnt Umber worked out in the thin area of land upon the bottom of the painting.
