Charcoal sketch to oil painting

My brother Chris, his son Eric and I planned on doing charcoal sketches this morning. When I saw this cloud bank getting ready to cover the sun I suggested to Chris to quickly sketch this scene before the sun dissapeared behind the clouds.

This was the scene Eric was working on at the same time.

The sun was gone now but we had our value sketches to work from.

This is Erics painting and our sketch from when the sun was out.

We learned the importance of value sketches before you paint. If we hadn"t sketched we would have lost the sun before we got the painting finished.
