At face value, clouds seem to be a pretty straight forward subject. But, just like the human body, the longer you look at them, the more inspiring and intricate they are. Most objects in still life paintings have a highlight angle (where the light hits it) and a shadow opposite that point. Because of their proximity to the sun and their subtle movements, clouds sometimes look like they have both in the same spot. What's more complex still is that usually in paintings, dark colors recede and light colors appear closest. With clouds, the darkest part of the cloud is often the nearest point, located in the center of the bellow -- ready to rain down on us. This painting has been my first exploration of clouds, but it will not be my last.
You will receive the exact painting shown in the photos of this listing. Photos are unedited (other than some straightening) and are taken in afternoon sun to bring out their colors to the best of my abilities.
This is an original piece of watercolor art painted on textured watercolor paper. Some waves in the paper from the water are natural and will easily flatten when framed. It is recommended that this painting be framed carefully under glass and placed out of direct sunlight.
