Prairie Sky

Prairie Sky
5 x 9 soft pastels on Art Spectrum Colourfix

My goal for this painting was to show distance in the clouds. The cloud reference photo was taken from the car while driving with my daughter and son-in-law to Eastern Washington. We were passing through winter wheat country when I couldn't resist the wonderful clouds. On the return trip, I asked my son-in-law to pull over so I could get a photo of this barn out there all alone. I realized I had to put the two together some day. Today was the day. The only thing I may change is to lighten the sky near the horizon a bit more. I think that will enhance the illusion.
