Clouds count.



People you see on the street, people you see in a park, or wherever you see people, oft time should be seen in your paintings as well. A painting can look more natural with people in it and provide an extra "it" factor that attracts a viewer's eye. The same can hold true with clouds. Whether they be icy, high flying cirrus, low, rain sodden stratus, or tall billowing cumulus, painting clouds in your sky can add that extra "it" factor. Do you think the "it" factor is in these three?

Excellent advice, and your paintings are spot on!!!

I have a super cloud book, written by John Day, I think it is a must for every landscape painter. Definitely worth getting out of the library for a look. :-)

Love your paintings David!

Fabulous landscapes and gorgeous clouds...I think when people see these at your next show they´ll definitely be saying...that´s it!!

The "it" factor lives in your clouds! Watercolor is sooo perfect for clouds and best done quickly to allow the paint to do its job. Oil can't give the same effect as quickly as watercolor.
