This week we spent the whole painting time of class working on a bunch of skies. Here is one I did.
Then our homework was to take the skies home and add some foreground or geography or other visual interest.
I used a painting as reference for this first one. You can see the original HERE.
This second one turned out better. I chatted with someone about it who pointed out that the lighting is really lacking, but I still think it is pretty decent.
My reference for this was a photo found Here.
