Grey Skies - Two Works in Progress

Today I worked on preparing a couple of backgrounds for snow scenes, even though there hasn't been much snow on the ground this year to inspire them.

Grey Sky 1

For the first one I used a flat wash of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

Grey Sky 2

For the second one I used the same colours but slightly paler and added a little alizarin crimson to make it seem like an early morning sky.

These paintings will be posted at a later date.
