Storm approaching Miller

Well Don you said you wanted storm clouds. First I mixed black and white paint to get a light grey. I used this to paint the bottom of the clouds. Then the uncleaned brush was dipped in pure white and dabbed on, above the grey, blending as I went along. More and more white was applied to build the upper layers of the clouds. More grey was added to various locations in the cloud formation. The brush was cleaned and pure white was used to highlight the upper edges of the clouds. With a little water on the brush it was dipped into the grey, most of the paint dabbed off, and then lightly dragged down at an angle from the bottom of the clouds to indicate rain, worked better than I thought.
Distant mountains added to the backdrop

"Yup, theres rain in them there hills".
