This is my new painting, The Corner Store (acrylic on canvas). My goal was to do loose brush work. In this post I talk about sky colors. There are images of the sky in saturated color and gray scale (value); before I painted the trees. We are familiar with vertical atmospheric perspective; the blue sky moves from the zenith to the horizon. The sky gets lighter as we move towards the horizon. At the horizon, the sky can be light blue, muted orange or warm gray. There is also a color change horizontally as we approach the sun. In my painting, the sun is coming from the far left. The sky is lighter as you approach the sun; it is warmer closer to the sun. In my painting, I have used a green.
