Daily Painting 1051 Rained out in the Savannas! Plein Air Alla Prima

Went out today and the sky looked pretty much like the painting when I got there but that big cloud in the background got closer and closer and pretty soon it began pouring. I took some photos too, the first one you can see the drops and the dead tree in the distance with a bird on it. I zoomed in on the bird and when I got home I saw it was a bald eagle!

I just checked the painting, it survived fine, the rain drops on it are all dried up. I was under a pavilion with fellow Daily Painter Fawn McNeil it was nice painting with her even though it was raining. The painting is 8 x 10 oil, on masonite $300.
