Yellow Sky

I painted this about a week and a half ago, it seems like another lifetime.
The days have been full since school started.
Once the routine settles in, I'll get out and paint some autumn scenes. 
For now there's this.  A sunset over a pond at Orchard Hills Park.  The sky started as a pale blue, but as the light changed it morphed to yelllow.  So beautiful.

So much to paint!

These are all 6 x 8 plein air paintings.  Most were completed in about an hour, give or take.
The negative space quest continues. When I pay strong attention to negative space, I am being visually challenged and stimulated.  Wolf Kahn talks about bringing the background spaces forward,  and playing with the balance between near and far spaces.  
ahhhh.  it's so exciting and all makes so much sense!
