We've been having absolutely gorgeous clouds lately, I love it!
My favorite part of this one is the light yellow/orange color shining through and against the clouds.

I wanted to go out and paint (because the clouds were amazing!), but I could tell they were going to open up and pour on me any second. So I stayed in the studio and painted the view from my window. The ocean was an amazing color, a teal shade, that made it look much more tropical than it actually is.

Here's one of the reasons I've never taken to plein air painting, I get inspired at the most inconvenient times! It's hard enough just to catch of photo, let alone pull over and make a painting. Although I did see an artist doing that once, painting on the side of the freeway that is. He was awesome and kind of insane at the same time.

The power was out one day so I painted this little cloud study from my studio window. Now up for auction with a very low starting bid of $10!

My little warm up one morning, this is the very cloudy view from my studio window.
