Painting Number 7 - Arizona Skies - Teri
I have been practicing painting skies on 5x6 inch Strathmore cold press 140# paper. I made a mess on one side of a big piece so I cut it into pieces to practice on.
I used wet-in-wet to get the sky effect and decided to add the cactus for a focal point (and wala, I have Cactus Monday done this week). The early morning and sunset skies in Arizona are just spectacular and the Saguaro cactus towering high in the sky adds to the beauty. They just make you want to paint them.
I have not done many skies before so I thought it was a good jumping off place to move into landscapes.
