This is possible the last storm of the monsoon.
Thursday afternoon the storm built up with clouds and the thunder was rumbling. When you looked up into the sky and clouds you could see Virga rain. This a type of rain that evaporated before it reaches the ground.
The watercolors were out for a project my son had just finished. I just sat down and did a few very fast cloud studies looking from my studio window. Watercolors are the hardest medium for me to work in, I have a tendency to over work them. I just sat down and forgetting what I was suppose to be working on, for 30 minutes or so just did some quick studies on some card stock that is really the wrong type of paper to use for watercolor. I just used what was out on the table. I find if I just paint or draw with what is at hand, it is more spontaneous and fun.
