July Challenge - Summer Skyscape.

Lovely and loose, Alan. I like it!

A very impressive sky, Alan. It certainly fits the challenge.

Like it Alan. Fits the bill nicely.

Bold and unusual sky for the UK Alan. Usually lots of big black clouds around but one can live in hope.

Excellent summer sky.

The sky is great Alan but I love the way you've painted the landscape! Contrasting 'blobs' (not an 'arty' word I know) of green paint strategically placed, seemingly simple yet so very effective.

I love the blues- really effective! And shows a lot of movement in the sky area too.

Thanks everyone for your comments, great fun working on this challenge - more to come!

Small 30 x 40cm oil on board. My first effort at this month's POL challenge. No graduated blue skies and fluffy white clouds, just a selection of vibrant blues scattered around - probably too vibrant!
