Unusually this painting was deliberately created with the intention of turning it into Christmas cards hence the rather predictable green and red start to this piece. In the spirit of getting myself organised for Christmas I started this in October but life had a different idea. So over the Christmas break I started playing around with this piece and seeing whether it would go.

You've probably realised by now that I do like to paint dark foreboding skies (AKA Clouds of Doom!) with dramatic contrasts between light and dark colours. With the use of transparent oranges or yellows over the tops of the contrasting lights and darks this can create quite a dramatic effect.
