night in Olneyville - 12" square (underpainting and 1st steps)

We had the most amazing thunderstorm this morning and I am showing a photo of one of the weirdest looking clouds I have ever seen. I began a new picture with a deep cool background today - it is a nocturne and I wanted the darkness and coldness underneath because hot city nights are really very rosy and orange. I am still using the limited palette but might have to supplement this one if it beomes necessary.
