Stormy Skies

The past few days have been a rollercoaster of foggy, misty, rainy thunderstorms. Although this makes for dull gray days, it does however ┬áresult in some great cloud formations and misty effect over the mountains. I’ve had a ball trying to capture these misty mountains. Here is a first attempt at capturing the rainy mist over Mary’s Peak

Here’s a second try. I never like to use the same colors twice when redoing a painting.

I also tried the same effects on the mountains that run along the side of Mary’s Peak. Again of course on yet another color combination.

I like the way they turned out. This gives me ideas for a larger painting across the mountain range.
