Hot Time in the Summertime--Original American Oil Painting

I've been experimenting with different colors for the sky in my landscape paintings. This 5x7 inch oil painting demonstrates what happens with a yellow sky. This is a painting of an alley that I have painted before, but last time I painted it, it was winter with piles of snow. This version depicts a hot summer evening. It is fun to see the effects of color choices on the mood of the painting. Here is the version I painted during the winter. The vantage point is slightly different. It is also a 5x7 inch painting. It was completed using acrylics and is an interesting comparison when you see what happens with a cool blue sky.
