Sunshine and Storm Clouds
"Sunshine and Storm Clouds" - watercolour - 16 x 26 cm
Often the simplest subjects can make the most dramatic paintings. One day I noticed these trees, with their bright Spring foliage, against a background of dark storm clouds. The nearly complimentary colours of deep blue and warm yellow added to the drama. I used only French Ultramarine, Burnt Sienna and Raw Sienna for the whole painting.
