Yellow Sky 2 and 3 - Two Works in Progress

Today I didn't have very much time to paint so I pulled out a number of small paintings that had backgrounds but nothing else on them. Unfortunately I have a large number of those from various demonstrations I have done on painting different kinds of skies for various art groups over the years.

After pulling out a number of paintings I decided to start with these two pieces (see post on 14 December 2011) that I started quite some time ago.

Yellow Sky 2

The first one was a graduated wash of raw sienna and I turned it from the vertical format I had originally planned for it set it as a landscape and added in a number of tree trunks and main branches.

Yellow Sky 3

On the second one I flipped it upside down to make it more of an evening scene. Again I indicated some tree trunks and main branches lightly with a pencil.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date once they have been completed, and now I had better get ready for my company which will arrive shortly to help me ring in the New Year.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
