A Week Of Cloud Painting

Cloud Fascination

I have always loved the beauty of the sky,
the clouds,
the colors,
the drama.

It's one of the reasons I wanted to learn to paint.
I wanted to paint beautiful clouds.

I haven't been all that successful painting clouds until recently.
I've spent this past week painting clouds every day,
study what I painted,
critiquing what I painted,
learning from what I painted.

This video shows my latest efforts
as I tried to paint a monochromatic but dramatic sky.


I added the surf to the painting because it told me to.
Paintings often tell us what to do next.

About Me

My photo
Ghent, Kentucky, United States
I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty. You can purchase paintings by contacting me at slgraves6@gmail.com.
