This painting started out to be a cardinal (the bird, not the church office). I went to my painting group, Pieces of Eight, with my palette all loaded with colors for painting a cardinal, and found I didn't have my photo of that cute little bird. I shifted gears and painted a cloud scene instead, using my palette of colors meant for painting a cardinal.
Where is the red, you ask? It's there, helping make the brown. It's also in the purple of the clouds.
Don't miss our group challenge on our blog on June 1st. It's very different from anything else we've done.
