Standing in the Sky

Scotland Sketch 3 2014 Katherine Kean
graphite on paper

"Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth." - Diane Ackerman

I drew this from a photograph taken in Scotland on a day when the clouds rushed in fast and dark and rained on us a little bit and then almost as quickly were gone. I'm glad I took a picture. This sky lasted only moments. but took my breath away while it lasted.
