beach clouds

oil on wood, 6x12
More cloud studies and a quote.

"That landscape painter who does not make his skies a very material part of his composition, neglects to avail himself of one of his greatest aids." 
The sky is the source of light in Nature. It governs everything."
  John Constable

And inspiration from Constable about  J.M.W. Turner...
...Turner has outdone himself; he seems to paint with tinted steam, so evanescent and so airy.

oh to do that!

Beautiful, Loriann. I could look at this for hours. So peaceful.

Such soft edges on those clouds ... no photo in the world could create this mood. "Peaceful" is the word I'd choose too!
