Through the treetops

Mackerel or Salmon skies are beautiful, if not a bit of a challenge to paint. Balancing the high chroma light against the clouds is a little tricky becasue if you get too much intensity in the light areas, it looks cartoonish, not enough reflected light in the grey under clouds, it goes flat. Always, a balancing act, but soooo much fun when you get in the grove.
