- This painting helped me break out of a creative rut. Simple subjects like this are great to get a quick win under your belt. There's nothing worse than having a painting go wrong after a dry spell.
- Simple subjects are challenging in the sense you need to work harder to make them interesting. In this case, I used thick texture and color variance to inject life into the scene.
- I pushed the color temperature of the clouds. A touch of purple in the shadows and yellow in the lights to make them "pop".
