Sunlight and Storm Clouds (Oil Bar Painting as of June 29, 2013)

Here is the oil bar painting I have been working on, a landscape based on a recent photo I took from Obear Park, here in Beverly, MA. (I posted the reference photo here on June 19.) Yesterday was my third day working on the sky, trying to get the color right, and I finally feel like I am getting pretty close to the color I want. In the photo, the sky was blue gray and periwinkle, due to storm clouds and evening light. (In the interests of full disclosure, when I photograph the painting, it is easy to see that the photo shows more of a blue cast, so I adjusted the image in iPhoto to show what the color looks like on the canvas.)
