I am working on clouds for a larger painting. This is the second study for the sky. When plein air painting you will not always get the perfect sky and even when I do the clouds move too fast for my skills. I will paint the sky to record atmospheric conditions and also take pictures.
I managed to finish two magnolia paintings plein air painting in front of my house. The time before that I drove 25 miles to Shimek Forest and finished one painting, which when I got home, I wiped off the canvas.

When these photos were taken the camera was set to continuous, so you will see a lot of horses at various stages of movement. I went out plein air painting and forgot my medium so I was painting with straight tube paint. When I got home I wiped the canvases with turpentine. This is painted over one of those which left just enough medium for a great ground.
