clouds and a beach road

20x40 oil
I have been working on this one for awhile now, with today being the pinnacle of frenzied work. Finally it is in "sitting phase." Wait, think, just stop.
With this I add a few more ideas, that I have learned to be true, about painting skies .
*Think of the clouds as layers or different planes. That helps you "sculpt" them with your two tools-value and color.
*Remember that the sky is a dome and that color and value need to respond to that shape.
*Use your clouds to make your composition.
