new season

i am posting an atmospheric piece i recently did here. this is the one i think Nick said has a "gigantic sky". well it is a nice sky and the rain effect works well - i think.

this was done using Art Spectrum Cerulean and Vermillion. these two pigments granulate and separate magnificently - plus they are pure complements and grey down like nothing else on Earth.

i want to try this technique with the Da Vinci Fluid acrylics. oh - and i still have this piece (somewhere safe (i think)). i might do a show later this year and need to start cranking out material for it - so i won't sell this just yet...
