"Rainclouds over The Burren"



Pin It
This month the Virtual paintout visits the beautiful County Clare in Ireland, a place I visited a few years ago.
I fell in love with the rugged beauty of the landscape so I was excited that this area was selected this month for the VP-community.

For this painting I used a limited palette of:
Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow medium, Permanent Red medium, Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue Deep.

Nice 'stormscape!' The composition is great, as is your utilization of the limited palette. Bravura brushwork too.
