Visiting Northern England: Guise Cliff

Detail Portion of the Sky
"Guise Cliff"
Rita Salazar Dickerson

I painted the sky today. After taking a necessary painting break to help my husband, Robert, recover from surgery, it felt good to get back to my easel.

I am reminded of what a privilege it is to be an artist.

Stage 1: Brushing in the composition of the landscape with a wash of Burnt Sienna.

Stage 2: Painting the sky with a palette knife.
