July Sunset in Shelby County

I painted this today from a photo I took last night on my way home from Riverside Art Center along I-75. The sky was awesome - storm clouds moving through from west to east and the sun managing to peak through occasionally. It is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Beautiful blues & greens, Barb! I so love stormy skies! Wish I'd see some here!

Thanks, Sherry. We haven't seen enough of them either recently. Lots of dark clouds - very little rain!
