Eyes Moving

This is an 8x10 oil painting that I did a couple weeks ago trying to capture as quickly as possible the clouds forming over the mountain top.  There's a row of trees bordering a pasture in the foreground.  As you can see I painted the trees quickly as well.  Gruppe in his book on color says that the eyes move quickly over what they see, and he advises doing the same when painting.  The brush doesn't move as quickly sometimes.
