I've been eying a special photograph since I snapped it last month. It was taken on the road between LA and the Goldstone facility one of those days considered partly sunny, which equated to lots of interesting clouds.
I decided to use it now because the big sky called for Stan Sperlak style. I laid in the colors and sprayed it down once with water. Trying to preserve most of the ghosts created, I carefully put down more for some additional definition.
Painting skies is one of my favorite things. Sperlak's method gives me a great excuse!
