Some Cloud Scapes

20100522 Skies wk2-4
{12 x 16 inch oil on linen}

In addition to taking three figure/portrait classes this term I signed up for Deborah Paris's online The Painted Sky class. We are in the third week and so far it has been an amazing exerience {these are all the other paintings completed so far} . Becoming more proficient with landscape painting is a goal of mine, so occasionally I will head outside to get some painting in.

"Be guided by feelings alone... Before any site and any object, abandon yourself to your first impression. If you have really been touched, you will convey to others the sincerity of your emotion." Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot

This is my goal with landscapes, to work with the impression and share the joy in it with others.

Thanks for reading. Liz
