Lately, while I wait to pick up my daughter in the car rider line, I have done quick cloud studies. These are just under 15 minute studies done on 9x12 Arches oil paper.
In the late summer these beautiful, big clouds build in central Texas. When we can often see from horizon to horizon, these giant cloud shapes dominate our skies. I love them. And the blue of the Texas sky is my favorite color. Something between cerulean and royal blue.
Where did the week go? Well TGIF!

Yep. I still do museum scenes.
I lost interest for awhile - feeling that it was being done to death for one thing. But I still enjoy painting the scenes.
This man is looking at "The Elder Sister" 1869 by William Bouguereau, in the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. I didn't do justice to his classical realism but like my brushwork better. ;-)
