Stormy landscape stage 1

Landscape I am doing today has a stormy overcast sky above a lake with a couple of houses, some trees and a windmill. I thought I would show you in stages how I am painting it.
I started with a white canvas and have added various mixes of grey for the background colour, applied in circular motions with a number 10 round brush. I added a darker shoreline in the centre and the bottom of the canvas.

Kaleidoscope Art Festival

Kaleidoscope Art Festival

This is an exhibition by artists who attend various charity resources around Sydney. Most of the artists are marginalised people; that is with a drug, alcohol or mental illness or are homeless.
I have 3 paintings in this exhibition. Please support if you live in Sydney, and dont worry, there is an ATM just around the corner.
