Sky exercise 2


A terrific sky with a great colour combination.

Fabulous sky Diana, great depth and atmosphere

Lovely movement in this sky study Diana.

Wonderful Diana, only are the skies great but the addition of buildings brings the whole thing to life.

Great sky Diana!

Thanks Stephen. It was quite a challenge to work out the sequence of washes Thank you Hilary I really wanted to capture the depth so delighted with your comment Thank you Stephen. I have started looking upwards a lot more now! Thank you Heather. The little buildings are fictional as it was just fells. Thank you Linda. It was a beauty

Superb washes and merging of colours and the silhouetted, minimal, background adds beautifully to the drama Diana.

Love this. The silhouetted village gives it scale and makes what could be a small area of sky look vast.

Love this Diana.

Great sky, lovely colours.

beautiful, everything else has been said

Beautiful colours Diana :-)

Thank you Carole I’m pleased that you think the background worked. Thanks Colette. I agree. A sky can be the subject of a painting but needs something else to place it. Thank you Diane. That’s lovely to hear Thank you Jenny. I do usually prefer somber colours but a sunrise /sunset is beautiful Thanks a lot Peter. Thank you very much Joan. Much appreciated. Thank you Romila. I really appreciate your feedback Thanks Andrea. The colour of the sky can be spectacular

Very good portrayal of a sky

Thank you Ceri. I’m finding myself looking upwards a lot now!
