|Georgetown Under the Big Sky No. 2|
oil painting by Jane McElvany Coonce
Although I'm not a meteorologist, I think these are cumulous clouds. The interesting thing about sky is that it reflects in the water; on a blue sky day, the Potomac is as blue as can be. On overcast days, it's a bit more murky looking. I don't know if you have driven down the George Washington Parkway recently, but the water is white! It's totally frozen over. It's actually quite pretty.
My next sky painting will be an evening sky with clouds. It's my favorite so far.
