A wet-on-wet watercolor of the stormy farm country skies. The end of summer has brought us a bucket of rainstorms and humidity so thick it slides down your skin like olive oil. I chased a few skylines and clouds as the storms were clearing out over the weekend and got to see some beautiful country. If you live around here, this is pretty common sight. During storm season, it’s erie and chaotic yet so beautiful.
*Little tip for landscape painting: stretch your paper properly so it doesn’t bow and wrinkle when you wet it. I like to run my paper under cool water and staple it down on a wood board. Let it dry naturally, or take a blow dryer to it for speedy set time. I also like to line the edge with a low adhesive painters tape.
