A Stormy Beginning • June 8, 2016


Good Morning All –


I began my 4th fjord painting yesterday. It’s the same view as last time, but with rain squalls out in the bay. I’m about to start back to work on it this morning, but there are questions.


How much farther should I go with it? I like the understatement in this picture and though the water still needs a little more work, what about the sky? Should it be stormier? This first photo is of where things are right now:




Here are some digital roughs: at top is the picture again as it is, followed by three variations in which the sky is darker and more dramatic. Should I go that direction?
