So beautiful! I love it! the calm snow, grass and clouds! just beautiful! Do you paint the landscaping from a photo or do you go to the site?

Hi Alejandro,  Thanks for taking time to comment~What appears to be snow

is actually sand.The painting is about a storm moving into Gasparilla Island

on the Gulf of Mexico. I work in the studio but sometimes watercolor sketch on site and take

many photos which I'll assemble on a board before starting a work

I like most of what you've done.  I would have preferred to see a mirrior image of the clouds with the larger clouds on the right side of the painting.  It would have made for a better balance.

Thanks Phil ,the reality is there was no cloud mirror image but I can understand your point

I did think about doing it anyway but decided I like the way the angle cuts into the composition
