Progress on painting…a skyscape full of emotions

The sky-scape in the Catcher in the Rye painting I’m working on gradually changes from a sunny, happy temperament to gloomy and bleak.  The darkest part of the painting is on the far right side, where Holden Caulfield will be standing on a cliff.

Holden Caulfield’s unsettled state of mind is revealed in the opening paragraph:

“If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me…”

Here are  a couple pictures of the canvas; one of the upper left, sunny side, and one of the upper right, dark side.  I’ll be adding more details as I go, and will be starting soon on the cliff and rye field.
