WHEN THE HEAVENS BURST OPEN

In Far West Texas, rain is always welcome, but especially so in late spring. Parched ranchland grasses seem to be stretching toward the heavens, beseeching the sky to give up moisture to turn them green. On this day, the vast sky between Marfa and Fort Davis held successive layers of isolated showers. Yucca, blooming in the foreground echoed the whites of the clouds against the golden grass. 
This pastel skyscape is more heavily underpainted than most-- I applied reds and golds to my paper first, then"washed" them off leaving just a tint of color. I did a second broken layer in violet tones. Only then did I start painting the blue sky and white clouds. The under colors that show through give this painting rich depth and a luminous glow, much like seeing the actual landscape as the sky paints it in color.
