The clouds were beautiful today, as they often are this time of year. There were patches of dark rainclouds interspersed among pastures of vaporous creatures (the Floating Cats are back!) in blue skies. I did these drawings from memory, which is not as good as righteous Plein Air, but I did actually observe these skyscapes while I was outdoors. The top image is done with markers, and the bottom one is in colored pencils. The page is in my wine and landscape sketchbook, so I officially declare outdoor drawing season Open. Original image is about 7" x 9", April 11, 2012.
