Plein air Sky Study

cloud study 2

Like it a lot! Very effective.

I like the impasto effect, Alan - very dramatic...

Lovely energy and warmth in this one, Alan.

Plenty of drama. Very effective.

Great sky as always Alan. I do like the colour palette.

I really like the big sweeping strokes it gives the sky so much movement and vigour.

Delicious sky Alan!

Lovely strong, dynamic work.

Oodles of paint, really effective, Alan

Oh yes Alan......some great dollops of paint and wonderful visible brush marks. It’s meaty and gorgeous.

You look as if you have really enjoyed yourself here Alan, being ultra liberal in slapping those lovely colours in such a rich, loose way. Great impasto effects.

Nice 1 Alan.

Really like this, Alan, colours and textures.

Like the looseness Alan.

Love this textures, Alan.

Very impressionistic - great effect.

Gorgeous Alan - so spontaneous

Dramatic and effective.

Hang on Studio Wall

A rapid ten minute sky study from my patio, working up areas of heavy impasto. These simple studies can come in really useful for later studio paintings. I've brushed in a simple landscape to give it a footing! oil on board 24 x 30cm.
