Messing around with color a bit here. I wanted something less than the usual bright blue summer sky I typically throw into a scene. So I added some transparent red iron oxide to my sunny sky mix of pthalo blue, white, and a trace of Naples yellow. I think it worked out well. It has a sort of vaguely gloomy underwater quality, like the pregnant moment before a storm, when all hell breaks loose. Which I guarantee will happen once that killer whale gets here. That whale ROCKS!
