This is a two part video that looks at the subject of clouds in landscape painting. The ability to observe and understand discernible patterns in nature is fundamental to landscape painting.
It allows a painter to interpret rather than copy a subject. In Part 1 of the Cloud study in oil is the first stage of the painting process: the composition and the under-painting. In the Cloud Study in Oil: Part 2 the colour palette is chosen and the painting process is demonstrated.
