White Plains Day

White Plains Day
12 x 15 soft pastels on Art Spectrum Pastel Board

My husband took a photo at White Plains Beach on Oahu last August that I used for the reference. The clouds were so amazing that day. The clouds here are so interesting. I read somewhere that you should not try to paint strange clouds because no one would believe them. It also said that cloud forms do not have flat bottoms. They do here. In the painting, they are not as flat as they appear in this photo or the reference photo. I used what I learned about cool and warm colors to create more dynamic clouds.
