"Clearing" 20 x 30" oilSkies have always been my nemesis. I envy those that paint them easily. Sometimes I can get them right and sometimes not. As I do more oils, I think that I will enjoy doing skies more. This one was done using transparent earth red- what a delicious color- as underpainting and working wet-in-wet for most of the painting.
I am learning to wait for things to dry. After my years of acrylics that's hard. I want instant gratification and really like to keep going once I start. Patience is the lesson of the day.
