Cloudy With a Chance of Rain
6" x 6" oil on panel
Clouds are so forgiving to paint and the colours that can be found in them make them interesting subjects. Like all subjects, looking for the overall shape, noting values and hues and where they change is vital to make a cloud look like, well, a cloud! Clouds such as this stratocumulus have wispy edges where some of the sky can be seen, while the body of the cloud has a denser look and the form is achieved through colour and value change.
Living on an island in the Atlantic, there's no shortage of clouds and "cloudy with a chance of rain" (or flurries) is pretty common in the forecast, so models are never far away.
