Warm Morning Sky

Backlit morning clouds were irresistable in this landscape of rolling hills and treelines.I'm including a couple process pics. The first is the "Carlsonesque" poster-like block in.
Notice bug next to tree on lower left(for added realism).
The second is after some lights, form, color and value variations have been explored.

Summer Stillness

Late morning light and atmosphere really enhanced this subject. With the faces of the barns in cool shadow the light bouncing of the rooftops gave a great contrast within the silhoutted center of interest. The background trees gave an interesting challenge in their green/gray warm coolness. All in all a enjoyable morning painting.
