Just a great view to paint! I set up fast as I could see the clouds were building. I painted again on panel, over and old painting I did in school. I had oil primed it a few weeks back. I used a No. 4 flat and blasted awat blocking it in.
After about 90 minutes this is where I had to stop as the thunder started..and the lighting too! They say lighting can travel 30 miles from a cloud--so I packed it up for the day. I had a lot of this one done, so I snapped a pick and finished it up at home. I think if you get a painting mostly done you can use photos to finish certain details and areas as you have already established most of the values and colors by eye from nature.
