This is my latest update on my Artwork-in-Progress ~ Alpine Hamlet (11″ x 14″) acrylic on canvas painting. I like serializing the progress of my paintings, as they slowly come to life over time, and these updates capture each stage along the way. At this point I’ve completed painting the sky, and wanted a sense and a feeling of an impending change in the Alpine weather. These are the first real clouds I’ve ever painted, so it was a learning experience for me ~ which is why I like the challenge of trying to paint something new and different in each and every painting.
Another thing that struck me in the process of trying to get the right mix and proportion in my clouds, was that when only the sky is painted, that’s all anyone looks at. Once the painting’s completed, the sky is probably the last thing noticed, after the buildings and the mountains. So I’ll let my clouds float by for the moment, and at the end of the painting if I still think they need some more attention I’ll return to them, but for now they’re finished ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
