There was a big fire just north of LA this weekend, and it made the sky look like we were in the middle of the apocalypse. I went to a friend’s place by the water and looked out from their roof to see a huge black cloud with cool colored night to the left, and the sky on fire to the right. And an oil rig shining off in the distance.
I’m going to make it, haha! One day left!!! Street view study at Seljalandsfoss Waterfall in Iceland! I loved the views behind the waterfall but the water was really nice in this one with the lights and darks.
After 10 years of painting the Scottish landscape, my recent work now becomes more involved with cloudcover and its effect on light and colour through both its translucent and opaque properties. Clouds are visible masses of water droplets or frozen ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere . They have the ability to refract and reflect, creating an ever changing perception of light which inspires my use of colour.
