Two small paintings in one day!

The first of clouds in a blue sky, as a study in doing puffy clouds.  It’s harder than it looks.

The other is after this photograph taken by Mel Huitson of a gorgeous sunset (minus her husband in the foreground, since I wanted purely a landscape).  I don’t think it does the photograph justice, but it was an interesting challenge.

It’s miserable and rainy out today – ah, Scottish summers – so I have to paint prettier skies for myself, I guess, alas… Hope you’re all having lovely weekends.
