We were painting outside on Thursday evening, being careful to listen for thunder. I was captivated by this large cloud that sprang up in front of the sun, and the way the light sparkled off the edges of the cloud, contrasting with the dense, dark, shifting mass.
I was sitting on a dock over the water, so I managed to stay somewhat comfortable, even though the evening was warm and muggy. We didn’t get any rain or thunder from this cloud, but I suspect that somebody else did!

you captured that thunderhead well! you’re having a great summer, aren’t you?!!!
Yes, I am having a wonderful summer, as are you! I’m enjoying the reports of your travels and adventures.
Great painting Ruth, the cloud looks really convincing, I felt sure you would get wet. Love hearing about your summer, as we are in the depth of winter cold here. Karen.
Thanks, Karen. I hope this brought some warmth to your day, even if only visually!
Thats great and so hard to do!!!
Wow. You did the impossible–made the paper look whiter than paper, bright as the sun! Oh, that is gorgeous, and so true to life! 🙂
The “secret” to making something look bright, is to put something dark next to it or around it. The use of complementary colors (yellow and purple) helps, too. Thanks, Katharine, for your encouraging comment.
Thanks for telling the secret! 🙂
I really like the colors and that feel of an approaching storm.
