Blue Beyond The Grey
What a lovely day, bright sunshine with dramatic grey clouds, the water a beautiful colour. There was a rainbow just out of sight, if I had turned a bit I could have painted it but, to tell the truth, I am a bit scared of rainbows! I don't think I know how to paint them! I worry that they would look far too sickly, like a sunset, dangerous territory. Also how do you get that light? I suspect a glaze would be good but that's impossible with a plein air painting. I am going to do some experiments.
