On 24x30 cm Winton oil paint, second attempt



Sun shines! Let me share one trick for highlights on clouds not to get green. After you made cloud base do pink highlights where you think they needed. Next step will be to apply orange+white on top, leave the furthest from the sun with pink highlights. Now to the ones that are very close to the sun,apply yellow+titanium white on top of the pink. This way- you get light behavior receding with the distance and converting to from yellows through oranges to pinks. And it does not make highlights green around the sun. Also pressure is very light and base of the cloud shall have only tiny bit of paint not to let them intermix in a crazy way.

Pretty much the same approach we do in the sky when transition to purpled from yellows.

I really like the rays coming from the sun!

Thanks for the tips and remarks!

I live the sun! A real beauty .
