Another piece in my Alla Prima series, my goal for this painting was to capture the dramatic values and subtle color changes seen just before an impending storm. The heavy use of a palette knife adds to the drama of the scene by sweeping unique lines and blends across the surface.

Getting to Know Jill

Jill E Poyerd brings “peaceful, contemplative moments” to life on the canvas. She approaches the canvas with little preparation, instead allowing herself total freedom to create. Both her watercolor and oil painting works depict gorgeous scenes of nature with a style distinctly her own. Something as common as a tree appears soft and ethereal through Jill’s painterly style.
