"Shifting Clouds" Acrylic 7x8 plus some inspiration....

This morning from the studio...........

"Shifting Cloud"
Acrylic 7x8
N/A

Had some difficulty photographing this one, the blues aren't quite as sharp in the real deal. A typical Ayrshire view at the moment with crops ripening in the high temperatures we've been getting. I love looking over the patchwork farmland at the varying colours. Pale greens, deep gold and an off white where the crop has been lifted. The clouds are shifting on this with a threat of rain possibly and some thunder in the distance.

From my early morning travels, taking photographs and soaking up the atmosphere. Bringing it back with me to help re-create it in the studio.........



We've got some new cows in the field that the White Family grazed (the Charolais I loved photographing). Young bullocks for fattening, I'm guessing they're Charolais Limousin crosses very pretty and great colours too paint....smile.



Love this one of Sunny and Amber having their morning groom, the ecstasy on Ambers face can't help but make me smile.

Beautiful cloud build up! Loving the colors of Scotland! Right now in Texas everything is brown.

Thanks Lee I had heard you were getting it pretty warm in Texas. It's getting to my favourtie time here when the intensity of the green is dying and were getting some ochres coming through :)
