Oil study #174: Hill Country in the Morning

This is a reworked piece from my last workshop in Fredericksburg with Virginia Vaughan.

I was supposed to paint a sunrise, but I got mesmerized by all the quick changes of the light and the clouds. I got to watch the best part of the sunrise, but didn't paint it :( Then I decided to turn around and paint the landscape in the opposite direction, which was interesting (and still challenging) and it didn't seem to move so fast (that's what I wanted to believe anyway).

I'm not sure I conveyed the right time of day (early morning), otherwise I'm happy with the clouds.

The clouds are wonderful, Johanne. I love this painting.
