Cloud Study

Copyrighted © 2008 by Linda Warner Constantino - 6" by 6".

I did this little cloud study yesterday from a photo. I find clouds so compelling and challenging, especially here in the South. These were summer thunderheads.

Famous landscape painter John Constable said that the "sky is the chief organ of sentiment in any picture." I could spend a long time just trying to paint clouds. I used to live on the tundra in a small town in western Alaska where there were literally no trees to speak of and the land so flat. The sky took up so much of my view - quite dynamic. I think it made an impression.

Some Good News by the way. Shop SCAD will be carrying some of my small paintings.Not sure if the will be online though.

Thanks Takeyce,
I had to step away from this one before it turned to mush.
