Portfolio: Deep in the Heart of Texas | Suzanne Owens

“HILL COUNTRY CLOUDSCAPE is a plein-air painting I did from the deck of my studio. My studio is on the top of a hill, and I can see about 30 miles north and west. The pattern of the clouds on this particular day was very interesting. I loved the way that the clouds seemed to climb upwards against the blue sky. The challenges came from designing the cloud shadows in the midground area. I also liked the color of the fall foliage. The trees here turn very subtle warm colors in the fall, not the vibrant colors you might see in the mountains or New England.”
