"Wisp" 16x20, Oil on Gessobord

"Wisp" 16x20, Oil on Gessobord

I love trying for the contrasts you see in the sky and those filaments of wisp that distill the light and color.

I pushed the blue until it had that very cool crisp blue (from cobalt) and then blended it with the red to make a deeper purple for the background cloud leading up to the cadmium yellow light. The build up took several weeks.

There is something spiritual in these tender clouds and the mysterious way in which they move and build the colors. I can't say it with words.
