I realized that the first half of the variations had a boring simple sky. Why didn't I play with the variations of clouds and weather? I know I will be focusing on the sky for at least several more. My project will be on hold for a week while I attend a workshop in South Carolina with Stan Sperlak, a wonderful pastel artist. I am bringing 5x7 paper in case I get the urge to paint a few variations. I will be back to posting next week.
