Costa Rican Cloudscape

This is a recent painting I did from a photo my husband snapped from a bus in Costa Rica. My original vision for the painting was a bit different, but sometimes they tend to take on a life of their own don't they? I honestly think it could be stronger compositionally, but I decided to leave it as it is and maybe my next cloudscape will be more of a study in composition!

I think it has a beautiful blue-grey contrast, and compositionally, I wouldn't change a thing. PS: I saw you are a CSU alum, my stepdad is a professor there-small world.

I like this as it is. Very pleasing.

I like it. It's simplistic enough to be suggestive and intriguing but the sky is incredibly realistic. Good job.

I love your style. I've seen it before but very few people can pull it off. Your use of colours is especially nice. And I totally agree with you. I love to draw/paint people and their emotions. It so rewarding; one learns a lot.
