Grey Sky A-E - Five Works in Progress

Today I just couldn't get into working on a painting so I decided to work on small pieces of paper that I had already cut to 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" for ACEO.

Grey Sky A

On one painting only French ultramarine blue with a hint of burnt sienna just to grey the colour slightly was used leaving areas of white for the clouds.

Grey Sky B

Using mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I painted in skies and clouds. I added a little raw sienna and put in a few tree shapes into the bottom of one painting.

Grey Sky C

Some of the backgrounds had very little cloud and lighter and darker mixtures of the two colours were used to give different tones to the skies.

Grey Sky D

A couple of the paintings I did vertically using different washes of the blue colour and painting it in with streaks of a grey mix.

Grey Sky E

I will posts these backgrounds sky paintings as I complete them at a later date.

If you would like more information about ACEO please go to my post on 11 March 2010.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
