John Constable, the 19th Century English landscape painter, said that the sky was the ‘chief organ of sentiment’ in his paintings. He become so obsessed with the clouds that, for a period in 1821 and 1822, he did away with the ground all together and devoted himself exclusively to painting cloud studies.
Clouds are, however, a challenging subject for any artist, not least because they never sit still for a portrait. So we are pleased to present cloud-inspired art from our members and site visitors. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
If you have cloud art that you would like to be considered for inclusion in this gallery of vapours, please send it in to: firstname.lastname@example.org
