30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 8 - Stormy Sky

This is my Day 8 painting for the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge with Leslie Saeta.
Here is a link to see the paintings by the other artists participating.

A contest is being held by the "Paint A Masterpiece" blog for entries to the challenge. You can take a look at Sea Dean's blog and vote too.

This painting was done from a photo I took when I was in Killarney National Park in Ireland. As you can see it wasn't a sunny day. I find dark clouds a challenge, so this was interesting to do. This painting is 5 x 7.

Last evening the Patchogue Sketch Club met at The Cheese Patch on Main Street in Patchogue for our weekly sketch outing. It was fun to see everyone after the holidays, sketch the displays, sample some cheese and have a good time.

  1. I love your stormy sky! Saw the cheese shop in your art journal but didn't see your stormy sky painting - it is so gorgeous. Love the sweeping vastness you captured in that painting and the heavy clouds. So much fun seeing artists I know in this challenge too!

  2. Love your stormy sky. And you know how much I love your journals. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Love the cheese patch and your stormy sky is just right!

  4. These are both wonderful; I especially like The Cheese Patch

  5. You nailed that stormy sky!! It looks just like that here most of the time! ;-)

  6. Robert, thanks so much! It is fun finding other artists you know taking part.

    Joan, thanks for coming over to look.

    Lorraine, thanks. Both were fun to do.

    Thanks so much, Helen!

    LOL Thanks, Tina. Ireland would be like that one minute and sunny the next...but then the clouds came back.

  7. Two quite different styles but both are perfect. Thank you for being part of the ART PARTY and for inviting people to post and vote. It's a fun way to brighten up what for me is a dull and snowy January.

    1. Thanks, Sea Dean. It is fun to have a reason to visit other art blogs. I entered all my links individually. I've been accumulating them for years.

  8. PS is that favourite links to visit an app or did you enter them all individually? There are certainly a lot.
