Watercolor of the day ~ Big Sky Lore

Big Sky Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little 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.

Title: Big Sky Lore
Painted: April 2018
Paints: Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colours
Paper: Arches Watercolor Block, cold pressed, 140lb 9″x12″
