New watercolor ~ Big Sky Lore

Big Sky Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s the latest Art of Lore

This watercolor is loosely based on a big sky scene I once found on the outskirts of Yosemite National Park in eastern California. It’s a simple composition of a place dwarfed by the blue above. But I think those little white clouds steal the show.

Stylistically, my inspiration for this one came from the New Deal landscapes of the 1930’s — particularly the oil painting Valley Farms by Ross Dickinson, which you can see at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC. It’s plain American and a personal favorite.
