5x7 acrylic on panel. Thunderstorm.

I went out last evening to shoot landscapes in declining light and instead got great shots of a huge thunderstorm forming.. which I later drove home through with the Jeep top down. So it goes, so it goes..

Really enjoying doing these small studies. There is the sense that there's nothing to lose and therefore they have a fresh and intuitive feel to them. This then helps me to keep that same freshness when repainting them larger.
