One More Miniature

I painted another miniature, this one based on another ten minute sketch, #15

I was going for an even bigger sky than I had in "Clouds over Sanpete County".  I believe my reference photo for this one was also taken in Sanpete County which is in central Utah where there is much more wide open countryside than most other parts of the state.

Original - $60

As with other recent paintings I painted this one mostly with a palette knife.  The ten minute sketch provided a perfect values road map and was very helpful in making the painting.  All these ten minute sketches I've been doing are becoming awfully handy!


  1. I just LOVE that huge sky!!! The sketch really turned into a lovely painting. Hope you are having a Happy Holiday!!!
