    Flying Shadows is a beautiful gem Julian Onderdonk has painted in saturated jewel-tones and a soft impressionistic style. It depicts the shadows of clouds that can be seen from a distance moving across the vast landscape and creating flying shadows that sweep over the Texas Hill Country. This subject allows for the contrast of vivid colors. The yellow hills in the foreground are like those typically found in his work, but the shadows in the middle-ground allow him to compliment the yellows with glowing purples and blues. The background is hazy sky-blue that shows clouds like the one casting the shadow while floating above the viewer. Flying Shadows is a wonderful example of Julian Onderdonk's brilliant technique and sense of color.
