THE SKY IS NOT RED-ORANGE

Leaving behind the deeply warm skies I love to paint, I turned to the dark stormy skies that I love to paint. OK, maybe I just love to paint skies, moody skies of any color. Often I will paint the sky and then decide on what will follow. That is what i did in this little painting using a theme I like so much, light falling against the dark background.

Bill, I just love that look too! Years ago in one of my Quarter Horse Journals, there was an ad of a stallion in the setting sun with a very dark blue-gray angry sky way behind him and it was the prettiest thing... I've never forgotten it and always hope to have the chance to shoot outdoor portraits for someone at such a time!
I love your skies and barns!!

What a coincidence - at the moment I'm painting a yellow-green scene (which is not my ususal color combi)!
I love it:)
