Taken in the front yard in the morning, on the way to an appointment. I went back to get the raincoat.
I’m not sure which kind of fishbone sky this is. Whatever kind it is, it’s the whole skeleton.
My original thought when I saw this cloud/tree combination was “Tree’s Bright Idea”, to compliment a previous post Palm Tree’s Sudden Idea. But somehow that caption did not quite fit. “Treesplanation Mark” also did’t work either. “Accented Tree” seemed like the perfect title.
The scale of the clouds attracted me at first. Then it was the depth. There are dark grays in front of lighter grays; whites abutting grays; hard outlines against the blue sky and misty whites that dissolve. A recreation of this scene in pen or pencil would be a good way to expand drawing skill […]
This is the completed sketch from yesterday:
There was a lot going on in the sky when I took this picture. Placing it within a quasi-musical notation framework anchors it, in a way.
Today the sky was totally blue. Not a cloud in sight. The picture below is from several days ago. I have fond memories of clouds, which, if predictions are correct, should be abundant next week.
