There were some great, low-hanging clouds in the sky this afternoon.

This epic cloud in our backyard made me stop dead in my tracks. The massive formation towered above our house like a mountain, the scale reinforced by the bush in the foreground. I tried to remember as much as I could about the colours and values, before doing this quick memory painting. The subtle warmth in the clouds from the afternoon sun is often lost in a photograph.

Love the glassy depth of the near cloud in the bottom left corner! Not so sure about the warmth of the cloud in the background though. I've probably just been looking at it too long :)

Glassy... that's a good word for that colour!
Haha you nailed it, I don't really recall seeing the warmer splodges on the cloud in the background. That was the brain getting in the way. X)
