1310 Prairie Magic, Part 1 of 4

This is the 1st of 4 episodes in water miscible oil painting project "Prairie Magic" in the 1300 series. This painting is a 12 x 24 stretched canvas and Jerry starts this painting with a blue gray underpainting and he begins the layering and building of the bands of colors in the rain clouds the fill the sky. He uses the 1 ½” brush to beautifully, softly blend the bands of grays to create the sheets of rain across the prairie sky. Stormy skies with oils is to create the mixing formulas and color changes directly on the canvas and not on the palette. This will add to the drama and intensity of the stormy skies.
