This piece started life with an underpainting of muted grey/violet applied thickly over a very smooth gessoed canvas. While the underpaint was still wet, I added colours close to the grey/violet such as cool blues and muted reds.

Then I decided to add a blue-green sky to add contrast.

I like the feel of this painting.

It reminds me of the billowing cloud fronts that rise over the hills in Ireland, glowing against the dark of the tree-covered hills.

How does this painting make you feel? I welcome your comment.
