I hope you aren’t getting fed up seeing pics of the sky..I am just in awe of it sometimes..on the journey home last night ..the sky was jsut awesome! Sarah was driving this time..in fact I got a row for taking the pics..she said it was putting her off her driving..she was a bit nervous as the winds had gotten up and the car was being swayed a bit.
Anyway I got these amazing pics of the dark clouds looming over the sunset.
Hope you enjoy :)

Fantastic skies,Pix.Very fond of painting those types in water colour.

Stupendous skies! Is that the right word? Hoping to see your pictures meadowland and pixi.

Idk lol sounds good to me!
Not sure if I will ever get round to painting all the things I want to! lol still have a couple on the go!

I like the brilliant colours of oils and the textures but I sometimes wonder if the sky should be painted in water colour - especially if there are rain clouds!!

Would you call this a Turner sky?

11 Sep, 2011

 

Well to each his or her own i guess..oils are my preferred medium..and most deifnitely a TUrner sky!!!!!!!!!!:))))

Weel a wiz drevin hame een nicht
Wi ma dochter at the wheel
A saw sic a sicht aheid o' us
Aw man it wiznae real!
The dark dark clouds o' a bonnie grey
wir loomin' in the sky
But a aroond..sic a bonnie blue
Am tellin' ye nae lie.
A o' a sudden fae unner the dark
cam a gowden glarin licht
The sun cam oot and filled ma een
wi sic a wondrus sicht.
It hurt ma een fir a meenit and then
A lookit awa tae the hills
The hale caboodle o colours..man
It gied me offie chills.
But guid eens ken a wiz in a daze
took these pics for a' tae see
So mebe the next time a gang there
ye cud a cam alang wi me!
Whit fun we'd hae a' the gether
dae ye no think sae?
A bottle of wine, a puff or twa
Man it wid mak ma day.
