Storm Watch, abstract art

"Storm Watch"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

Just goofing around today. This type of painting is fun to do, just put down colors and see where it takes me.

I started with a rainbow type of layout, and then just started pulling colors together. I lost the yellows in the red and green, but thought it looked like grass, so then I added more grass.

The rocks started showing up with reflected lights, which I thought was too cool, so I added more purple in the shadows to strengthen them.

The water looked like an ocean right from the start, so I added the waves to make the storm surf.

 The sky changed about three times, and when the dark shadows showed up I thought it was perfect for the way the grass was so blown about.
