Calm before the Storm in watercolours

Really pleased how this one turned out.  I set out to create a very stormy looking sky - was going to use Payne's grey for the darkest part of the sky but I always find that it dries a lot lighter so decided to try out Indigo colour  that I bought a few weeks - really worked well and I love the effect it created so will have to use colour a bit more often.

Calm before the Storm measures 10 x 8 inches and is painted on 300gsm rough Arches watercolour paper.


Many thanks to Robyn Lovelock for the reference photo.
