Rethinking the sky color

Boy does the brain never shut down? Ever since I posted the yellow sky on Monday I have been rethinking it. Thank goodness for EQ so you can try things with a click instead of cutting out fabric.

I am now thinking of a dark red sky. I also like the dark orange sky, but don’t have any fabrics in my stash to match it.

Red sky (burning fossil fuels) with high contrast smoke plume.

Red sky with less contrast in the plume.

Dark orange sky

What do you think? I don’t want to turn this into another fabric analysis like the birds!

Thanks for reading.

I confess the red (or a red-orange) sky would evoke thoughts of a conflagration...but an eery yellow glow...Perhaps those familiar with tornadoes would relate...

Thanks to you (and another cyber-friend or two) I've asked EB to add me to her list for MC 2015...We'll keep each other in our prayers, shall we?! ;-)
