"Downpour" Oil Painting

36x36, Oil on Canvas
I've been working on doing some BIGGER work.  There is something in storm clouds that I love.  The way the colors run and the clouds burst open.  I tried some Virga clouds with this one.  These are clouds that usually dissipate all their moisture before they reach landfall...but sometimes they are too full and reach all the way to the earth below.
I will have a chance tomorrow to put in some details in the land and fill out some of the pockets of cool rain.  I also want to go back and smooth out some of the color bands.  It is tough to paint something so smooth and full of color.  I love trying though.
