Against the Sky- study 14 x 11" acrylic
Now and then I like to do a small study first, before I do a larger version of an image. I had fun doing both pieces and learned some things from the study that, I think, helped make the final version stronger. I wanted the rocks to be looser and for the shape of the tree to be less busy. I painted the final version in oil so I could really blend the transitions in the sky. I do like the drips in the study though.
