Cloud Study in Oil Part 1

11 x 14, oil/canvas
This is an underpainting for a cloud study done in my landscape painting class.  I have chosen a burnt sienna  ground because it will create a striking contrast for the blues of the sky and will warm the whites of the clouds. The  The accompanying video looks at the important characteristics of clouds that one should be aware of when wanting to paint them, as well as painting concepts such as the use of positive and negative space.

You can see the video in high definition at You Tube.
