Clouds 2

Can't win them all.  These clouds didn't turn out the same way as the first ones did, but to keep things real, I am posting them anyway.  This blog and challenge is all about trying new things and tackling subjects that have been a problem for me to paint in the past.  If you don't try something, how will you ever learn?  I am past the stage of worrying about what others think about my paintings.  I enjoy the process of painting and if the painting turns out, that is a bonus.  Does that make any sense?  I learn something with every painting.

This is another Pan Pastel painting, painted on 5 x 7 Maize Pastelmat.  I am also posting a revision of the last painting.  I changed the shape of the top cloud, because it was the same shape as the bottom cloud.

Thanks for looking.


Painting #21 Revised



  1. Nice Doug...nice to see the blog. It will help the journey!!!

  2. Thanks for checking out the blog, Larry. It has helped already. Thank you for the challenge.

  3. Gorgeous revision on the cloned clouds! Now it just soars up as one big lovely abstract shape, dancing around in the wind. I hope you like it as much as I do.

    Very cool on the new painting, I like the color variegation in the cloud shadows and those turquoise bits in the ground. Love the direction you're going with these landscapes!

    1. As soon as I published the original, I knew I had clones. Then you confirmed it. Thanks. I am happy with the revision now.
